Latest News and Events

Audubon supports the Woodland Preservation and Stewardship Act of 2019, introduced by Rhode Island Representative Arthur Handy (District 18) and developed in partnership with Audubon. This bill recognizes and protects Rhode Island’s essential forest habitats.

This week (3/20/19) we will walk at Great Swamp in South Kingstown. Early migrants have started arriving, and the weather on Wednesday is supposed to be nice, so we should be reminded that Spring really is just around the corner. Meet at 9:00 in the parking area at the very end of Great Neck Road. We’re between hunting seasons, so orange is not necessary.

Without changes in state policy, development will continue unchecked in areas of the state critically important as bird and wildlife habitat.
