New! Audubon is offering small group explorations – designed with safety in mind.



Get up close with some cool critters, take a walk to the shore or enjoy a Bats and Beer evening program. Audubon knows how to keep it cool – and safe – in July when the weather gets hot and muggy!


Note: Rhode Island Covid-19 safety guidelines will be followed for all programs with small groups led Audubon naturalists. 


Family units are encouraged to participate together.


Masks and social distancing are required.


Participants must bring their own masks.
