Audubon Annual Tree Sale and Photos with Santa

Come to Audubon on December 7th, 2019, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, and pick a freshly cut tree from a local Rhode Island farm and have your child’s picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus (reservations required for photos). Enjoy seasonal crafts and nature activities, natural history exhibits and aquarium, the Audubon Nature Gift Shop and wintry walks on fully accessible trails to Narragansett Bay.

Audubon Annual Tree Sale

Christmas trees will be available for sale at the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium starting on December 7th, 2019 and will be sold until stock is sold out. Click here for Center hours. We suggest calling advance to check inventory after December 7th.

The trees are locally grown at Henry’s Tree Farm in Hope, RI (Scituate) and were cut on December 4th. Unlike trees that come from up north and are cut weeks in advance, these trees should stay fresh all month long!

The trees are Douglas Fir which tend to be rounder than Balsam or Fraser Fir. The tree range in size from 5 to 8 ft.

100% of proceeds go to the Audubon Society of Rhode Island.

Tree Prices: $40 Audubon members, $45 non-members

FULLY BOOKED! Photos With Santa | Co-hosted with East Bay Newspapers

Available reservations have been fully booked for Saturday's Photos with Santa event. Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate day-of arrivals without a reservation.

Families from across the area are invited to join Santa and have your picture taken! After the event, your picture can be posted in a special addition of the East Bay Newspapers!

Make your reservation in advance, reservations are required and are free. Please note that you will only need one reservation per family. You can make a reservation (register) that will cover your family, assuming that they will be photographed together. If the kiddos are to be photographed separately you'll want to make a reservation for each.
