We have moved this walk to the second Thursday of the month to avoid being too close to Labor Day Weekend!
Late summer is a great time to visit Audubon’s Maxwell Mays Wildlife Refuge. The late Rhode Island artist Maxwell Mays donated over 295 acres of diverse wildlife habitat to Audubon in 2010.
Fields, forests and wetlands are changing and new flowers are appearing. Scott Ruhren, director of conservation at Audubon and a lifelong gardener and botanist will lead you on a trail hike through diverse habitats. We will look for plants along the way as well as discuss human and land-use history. This walk is free and open to the public. There is no registration. Come and Enjoy.
