Mission:

The purposes of the Audubon Society of Rhode Island are to foster conservation of wild birds and other animal and plant life, to conserve wildlife habitat and unique natural areas through acquisition or other means, to carry out a broad program of public conservation education, to focus public attention on natural resource problems, to provide leadership when action on natural resource problems is necessary, and to take other actions to foster better management of the natural environment for the benefit of humans and all other life.

Our values:

Our values describe the way we treat people and the way we do business. These values guide our decisions and actions. These values belong to everyone in the organization.

Natural world
Nature contains a web of complex relationships. We value the integrity and connectedness of the natural world, and appreciate its biodiversity. We recognize that preservation of the natural world is essential for human life.

Good science and sound knowledge
Objective empirical science sets the standard for the preservation of natural systems. We promote good science and sound knowledge. We believe that people deserve to be fully informed.

Civic engagement, community and action
Civic engagement - acting individually and collectively - is essential to sustainable development and global stewardship of the earth's resources and the environment. We recognize human responsibility to the global environment. We believe in collaborative action in order to live in harmony with nature.

Excellence and permanence
Integrity, trustworthiness and quality are essential to permanence. We pursue excellence in every area of our work. We successfully adapt due to our external focus, network connectedness, inquisitiveness, and innovation. We are committed to future generations, passing on a strong organization, and a sustainable environment.

Respect, diversity and access
The earth and all living organisms deserve respect. Our world and its people are rich in diversity. We embrace inclusion and access regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, language, gender, age, socioeconomics, physical challenges, sexual orientation, or any other difference. We embrace inclusion and access regardless of differences in background or life experience. We welcome ideas and provide opportunities to our guests, donors, volunteers and employees.

Tradition and accomplishments
The past provides important perspective and insight for today and tomorrow. We respect our history, honor our accomplishments, and embrace change for the future.

There are a couple of nice, scenic paths here; it’s pretty small, so the paths are short and often not much separated from the shopping centers nearby, but the nature’s pretty and it can be pretty peaceful.

Very much enjoy walking here. They have a lending library which I have been privileged to utilize. Loaned materials for a kindergarten classroom one time, as well as books.
