The title says it all! Unfortunately it is due to close this month as part of a settlement with a nasty neighbor. What a loss!

The winding trails are just the start of a jaw dropping experience of the view, the landscape, humming birds, bees, and butterflies. Very hospitable kind man name Paul is so gracious to invite strangers to share in this beauty of God's creation.

Only open in the summer....absolutely worth the trip. It's on the bluff overlooking Long Island Sound...the view alone is worth the trip but the hummingbirds make this a memorable experience. They will fly right up to you and hover around you. It's just awesome!

This was our 2nd visit to the sanctuary this afternoon and the hummingbird activity was simply incredible. Complete with lush gardens rich with salvia and trumpet vines to attract the birds, along with the glamorous views of Long Island Sound, this is one of the...More

There is no direct phone number. The best way to reach it is via email (address on website) but even then he may not answer. Besides, sadly the sanctuary is now closed for good.
