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 blue lobster and 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 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.
ATTENTION - While the Environmental Education Center in Bristol, RI will remain open, the gravel accessibility trail will be closed for renovations. The grass trail and Boardwalk will remain open during this time.
