The Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium is home to a natural history museum offering interactive exhibits that explore local habitats and wildlife found in the Ocean State and the Audubon Nature Shop. Visitors discover creatures that live in a tidepool, observe marine life from Narragansett Bay, visit with Common Ravens Zach and Lucy, and peek inside a 33-foot life size model of a North Atlantic Right Whale.

Situated on the 28-acre Claire D. McIntosh Wildlife Refuge, ADA certified walking trails start in upland meadows and wind to a ¼ mile boardwalk through fresh and saltwater marshes to a majestic view of Narragansett Bay. Located along the East Bay Bike Path, the trails allow bikers and walkers access to the refuge's natural beauty.

Guided walks, birding classes, lectures and family programs are offered throughout the year. The facility and trails are handicapped accessible.


Using the Trails: Refuge Guidelines

All Audubon Society of Rhode Island land is protected. Our public wildlife refuges are for everyone to enjoy. Please respect the natural habitats of Audubon's refuges and avoid disturbing their inhabitants. Also, respect the rights of others when using the trails.

In order to ensure that these areas remain as healthy habitats, we ask you please to abide by these simple rules, enjoying the natural settings with quiet enthusiasm and a respectful sense of adventure. By conserving these open spaces, Audubon Society of Rhode Island, along with its members and partners, is able to fulfill its mission of protecting the nature of Rhode Island.
