A non-profit organization located in Ridgefield, Connecticut whose goal is to foster an appreciation of nature, science, history, and the arts.


It is with a great deal of sadness, that the Discovery Center at Ridgefield is closing its “doors”.

It has been a great honor serving Ridgefield and surrounding communities. We thank all the people and organizations that have supported us the past 35 years. We will miss inviting you to snowshoe, hike, bird watch, explore the history of Ridgefield, visit with our mounted animals, and participate in our scouting programs.  Unfortunately, it is now time to let the “Ghosts of Ridgefield” remain in their ethereal realm. 

However, our dedicated astronomers will continue to amaze the public with the
Wonders of the Universe at the
New Pond Farm Observatory in West Redding.

They hope to see you there.
