We are delighted to announce two significant land donations that will further enhance our conservation efforts and provide vital sanctuaries for birds and wildlife. The first donation is a 5-acre parcel in Coventry, seamlessly merging with the existing Audubon Perched Boulder Woods. The second donation is an extraordinary milestone for Audubon - a 300-acre parcel in North Kingstown that will forever be recognized as Congdon Wood: an unfragmented habitat that protects the headwaters of the Saugatucket River and wildlife habitat with its contiguous expanse of forest and wetland.

Through donor support of any kind, Audubon can fulfill its mission of educating five-year-olds about the wonders of wildlife, managing habitat for declining pollinator species, or permanently protecting forests, fields, and wetlands, it is connecting its founding legacy to what lies ahead.
