Stretch your legs, get some fresh air, and end the day with a walk in nature. Join the Norman Bird Sanctuary on an exploration of trails during a free guided walk every Wednesday afternoon. Norman Bird Sanctuary offers seven miles of unique trails that meander throughout a diverse array of habitats and ecosystems. Learn to spot native species, identify plants, and see what you find along the way.
Established in 1949, Norman Bird Sanctuary is the largest contiguous preserved land on Aquidneck Island, with 300 acres and 7 miles of trail stretching from coastal dunes to forested woodland. We foster lifelong connections between people and the Sanctuary’s rich and diverse habitats through conservation, education, and exploration.
This free public program requires no registration, and will meet in the Norman Bird Sanctuary parking lot ten minutes prior to the walk. In the event of inclement weather, an announcement that day will be made on on the Sanctuary’s website determining whether the walk will continue or not. Dogs are not permitted at the Sanctuary.
