Hoot, the Barred OwlWhether you're interested in birding, plant identification, hiking, or nature photography, you'll find a way to enjoy the varied woodland, wetland and meadow habitats at DPNC. With eight miles of hiking trails to explore, you can search for bluebirds in the meadow, painted turtles or bullfrogs in the pond, admire our summer wildflower garden or simply enjoy a peaceful walk in the woods.

Several species of hawks and owls reside in outdoor flight enclosures on the sanctuary. Meet Barred, Great Horned and Screech owls, a Peregrine Falcon, a Saw Whet Owl and Red Tailed Hawks - all raptors native to southern New England. Fishing racoon exhibit

Picnic tables and a "tree house" are available for your enjoyment.

Please take out with you any trash that you bring in.

The Nature Center is also steward of the Peace Sanctuary on River Road in Mystic, Connecticut. Each May nearly 400 pink lady's slippers bloom there.
