Centrally located in scenic Bristol, Rhode Island, just 30 minutes from Providence, Newport, and Fall River, the nationally award-wining Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium is one of Rhode Island 's most unique meeting venues.

The Center offers an auditorium with a patio overlooking a rolling meadow and stunning sunsets. There are also two classrooms, which can be used for smaller meetings or for breakout sessions. The exhibit space adds a unique dining setting with aquarium tanks and hands-on exhibits displaying southern New England environmental habitats.

The 28-acre wildlife refuge has trails with a 1/4-mile boardwalk that winds through fresh and saltwater marshes leading to a majestic view of Narragansett Bay. Any or all of these areas within the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium are available for your next meeting or function, such as:
