Sanctuary History

Peter Dubacher started the Berkshire Bird Paradise, a certified not for profit company back in 1972 as a “labor of love.” It has grown into one of the largest bird sanctuaries in the country. The sanctuary has evolved into an outdoors educational institution, where students on field trips with their parents or on college internship programs can learn about birds. The sanctuary is also a small botanical garden with hundreds of plants and exotic flowers .We are constantly improving our grounds, with the help of great volunteers

We always welcome exotic plants that need a good home. we have heated enclosed areas to keep them healthy through the long cold winters.
