Providence Birding Adventure
October 20 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Join naturalists from the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and the Providence Parks Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership for a free bird walk in Providence on Thursday, October 20, from 9:30-10:30 am.
We are meeting at North Burial Ground, a lovely green space near the heart of the city. There is a pond and the Moshassuck River runs along the edge, providing good wetland habitat for birds and amphibians as well. We will gather at the gate on the east side of the cemetery, where Rochambeau meets North Main Street.
Reach out to Lisa Maloney firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
We encourage you to bicycle, carpool or use public transit if you can. The R-line bus stops there, and the gate is right near the bus shelter. If driving, you can park along North Main Street.
Some safety recommendations:
- Dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes.
- The paths are paved, but uneven in some places. The gate can accommodate a walker or a wheelchair. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the terrain.
- Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated or if you feel more comfortable doing so.
- We encourage you to bring your own equipment – binoculars and field guides – so that we can limit sharing among participants.
We acknowledge that these lands we will explore are the traditional, ancestral and contemporary lands of the Narragansett, Nahaganset, Wôpanâak, and Pokanoket nations. We are grateful to these local indigenous nations for being the first to steward these lands and waters, and for continuing that stewardship in the present and into the future.
These birding adventures began in 2018 as part of the Urban Bird Treaty Program, and in 2019, Providence was designated a Bird Treaty City. To read more about the Urban Bird Treaty and other participating cities, visit the website and check out the Storymap.
