In 1921, with the guidance of NY architect Charles Adams Platt and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Thomas Cochran, a Phillips Academy graduate and benefactor, began a historic expansion and beautification program at the school. The idea for a wildlife (bird) sanctuary began when he and some colleagues decided that Rabbit Pond (on the campus) would be a great stopping place for migratory birds.

Today, the sanctuary, located at the end of Chapel Avenue, is open daily from 6am to 6pm.
