Audubon Environmental Education Center
The Audubon Environmental Education Center is a state-of-the-art natural history museum and aquarium offering many natural wonders to explore. See our habitat displays. Look inside a 33-foot life size Right Whale, discover life in a tide pool, observe Narragansett Bay's marine life, visit our rare orange lobster, or even explore a cornfield at night. The Center's interactive exhibits feature local habitats and offer many fun ways to enjoy nature.
Situated on the 28-acre Claire D. McIntosh Wildlife Refuge, the Environmental Education Center has walking trails with a ¼ mile boardwalk that winds through fresh and saltwater marshes to a majestic view of Narragansett Bay. The refuge is along the East Bay Bike Path allowing bikers and walkers access to the refuge's natural beauty.
The Center offers guided tours, nature walks, special family programs and much more throughout the year. The facility and trails are handicapped accessible.
NOTICE: The exhibit hall at the Audubon Environmental Education Center will be closed until further notice while its roof is under repair. Although the exhibits will be closed during the repair, all programs currently scheduled at the Audubon Environmental Education Center will take place as planned. Admission to the Center will be free to the public and the walking trails and gift shop will remain open during the repair. We hope to reopen the exhibit hall as quickly as possible. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
