This week's (1/16) walk will be at Sachuest National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown at 9 am. This refuge is usually very cold so please dress appropriately. Also, keep in mind that with the government shut down, the bathrooms are likely to be closed. Hope to see you there!
Fort Wildlife Refuge Parking Lot Closed
Please note that the Fort Wildlife Refuge (North Smithfield) parking lot is currently closed until further notice due to extreme mud. Street parking on Route 5 is allowed. If needed, you may also park on the access road, as long as it remains passable. Trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Please be careful walking to the trail head and don't forget your waterproof boots!
The next FREE Providence Guided Bird Walk will be held at Save the Bay on Wednesday, January 23rd from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. This spot has excellent views of Narrragansett Bay, so we will be looking for winter waterfowl, raptors and seals. Binoculars are available. Save the Bay is located at 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence.
