Latest News and Events

The Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium will be closed on January 22nd for a private event and January 28th for the sold-out Audubon Conservation Symposium. Trails and grounds will remain open to the public to enjoy both days. Thank you for your understanding!

At wildlife refuges across Rhode Island, Audubon manages hundreds of acres of open fields for birds and wildlife. Without proper management, most of these breaks in the forested landscape would revert to shrub thickets and eventually forest in the process of field succession.

Ruecker Wildlife Refuge Blue Trail Closed

The bridge on the blue trail at Ruecker Wildlife Refuge in Tiverton, RI has been washed out and the trail is currently impassable. Thank you for your patience as we fix it!
