The Nature Center and Aquarium is a natural history museum offering interactive exhibits that explore local habitats and wildlife found in the Ocean State. Visitors discover creatures that live in a tide pool, observe marine life from Narragansett Bay, visit with Red-tailed Hawks, and peek inside a 33-foot life size model of a North Atlantic Right Whale.
Situated on the 28-acre Claire D. McIntosh Wildlife Refuge, easy walking trails start in upland meadows and wind to a ¼ mile boardwalk through fresh and saltwater marshes to a majestic view of Narragansett Bay. Located along the East Bay Bike Path, the trails allow bikers and walkers access to the refuge's natural beauty.
Guided walks, birding classes, lectures and family programs are offered throughout the year. The facility and trails are handicapped accessible.
