The Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary is owned and operated by the Indiana Audubon Society and is located south of Connersville in Fayette County.
Alice Green Gray gave the initial 264 acre property to the Indiana Audubon Society in 1943 as a living memorial to her daughter
Mary, who preceded her in death. Congressman Finley H. Gray willed additional property to the society in 1947, bringing the total to more than 600 acres. Gifts from members have allowed the acquisition of more property so that the Sanctuary now occupies more than 700 acres.
Visitors are welcome to the property from dawn to dusk. Rustic camping and fishing is available to Indiana Audubon members (check in at Caretaker residence or check in online with Operations Manager prior to arrival). Join Indiana Audubon Here.
