A Green and Clean Future for Rhode Island

2018 Green Economy and Clean Water Bond Rhode Island Audubon Society Long Pond Open Space Protection Recreation

Thank you for your enthusiastic support of the Green Economy and Clean Water Bond, which passed statewide with nearly 80% approval.

With your help and Audubon’s leadership we are thrilled to see the broad support for these critical investments in our environment. Support was strong throughout the state, with the City of Providence leading with 90.6 % of the votes supporting the bond referendum.

Rhode Island’s environment is in a better place thanks to you. With your continued support we will monitor and advocate for quick distribution of these critical funds to help birds, wildlife and us all.

Latest News and Events

This week's (1/16) walk will be at Sachuest National Wildlife Refuge in Middletown at 9 am. This refuge is usually very cold so please dress appropriately. Also, keep in mind that with the government shut down, the bathrooms are likely to be closed. Hope to see you there!

Fort Wildlife Refuge Parking Lot Closed

Please note that the Fort Wildlife Refuge (North Smithfield) parking lot is currently closed until further notice due to extreme mud. Street parking on Route 5 is allowed. If needed, you may also park on the access road, as long as it remains passable. Trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Please be careful walking to the trail head and don't forget your waterproof boots!

The next FREE Providence Guided Bird Walk will be held at Save the Bay on Wednesday, January 23rd from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. This spot has excellent views of Narrragansett Bay, so we will be looking for winter waterfowl, raptors and seals. Binoculars are available. Save the Bay is located at 100 Save the Bay Drive in Providence.
