DescriptionThe Bent of the River is a 700-acre nature center and sanctuary. It covers land from South Britain to within two hundred yards of the Housatonic River and lies in the watersheds of the Pomperaug River and Little Pootatuck Brook. The Center encompasses many ecosystems and habitats including unfragmented forest, both deciduous and coniferous, grasslands, old meadows, vernal pools, riparian (riverside) forest, and red maple swamps. As a result of this variety, visitors can, if they are quiet and observant, see a large number of species of plants and animals in a fairly small space.

The Center has about fifteen miles of hiking trails through meadows and woods. Some of these trails run through countryside that feels very remote and wild. Please, leave pets at home.
