Living here in South County RI, we are blessed to be only a few miles from Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge. This area was an old airfield during WWII but has slowly been restored to it's old natural habitat. It's a large wildlife refuge with 2 parts to it. You can enter either side by car and either hike just part or do the whole refuge (total is about 5 miles round trip). There are always fun sightings - deer and many varieties of birds, from hawks, osprey, warblers, king birds, cedar waxwings, yellowthroats, heron, egrets, many kinds of ducks & much much more! If you like wildlife, you will love Ninigret! The pond is accessible for kayaks, canoes and small power craft, as well as clamming, fishing and just exploring (if you are like my grandchildren!) By mid-summer, there are berries ripe enough to pick and eat along the way - YUM!! All in all, it is a wonderful way to spend an hour or a half-day while you are in our small State.

There are several easy hiking trails around the Wildlife refuge. Very nice views with some signs explaining the history of the region. If your close by, it's worth the stop.
