Guided Programs

We offer a variety of programs that aim to increase awareness, understanding and appreciation of Narragansett Bay. Programs are offered throughout the year on a variety of topics depending on the season. In the winter, join us as we view harbor seals lounging on the rocks just off the south end of the island. The spring season is the perfect time of year to learn about the many birds species that migrate to our region and depend on places like the Reserve to rest, refuel and breed. Or spend a crisp fall day hiking the miles of trails that weave through a variety of beautiful habitats. Each program is infused with the natural and cultural history of the island as well as updates on current research being conducted by Reserve staff. Check out our calendar for current program offerings.

 

Explore on your own

The south end of Prudence Island is a beautiful place to explore. Walk adjacent to the shoreline, past coastal meadows, and through forested wetlands. Along the way, interpretive panels will teach you about these habitats, the challenges facing them, and what the Reserve is doing to study and protect these special places.
