Hootin’ for Habitats Campaign


Woodcock Nature Center of Wilton/Ridgefield is home to 5 non-releasable birds of prey.  Our 149-acre property is a wonderful resource for hikers, birders and anyone who wants to extend their own back yard.


Woodcock’s trails and outdoor aviaries are accessible 365 days a year from dawn until dusk with no admission fee charged. Unfortunately, our birds’ existing aviaries are coming to the end of their natural lives. They were built 16 years ago of non-pressure treated wood and are now suffering from the effects of years of exposure to our harsh New England weather.


Funds raised during this campaign, will be directed to helping us rebuild these aviaries to create a lasting and safe enclosure for these important Woodcock family members and those that will follow.
