September 2022 Providence Birding Adventure 

Join naturalists from the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and the Providence Parks Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership for a free bird banding demonstration in Roger Williams Park on Saturday, September 17, at 8:30 am.  

Learn about how bird banding helps with research on the life histories and migration patterns of birds, and stay for a guided bird walk after the demonstration if your time and interest permits. 

Here are some specifics: 

We are asking for everyone interested to sign-up since this is usually a popular program! Registration is limited to 25 attendees. 

We will send our exact meeting spot to you once you register. 

Safety recommendations: please do wear a mask if you are not vaccinated or if you feel more comfortable doing so.  If you are fully vaccinated, then you may attend without a mask, but please remain aware of how close we get to each other when looking at the birds. Families with children who may not be able to be vaccinated, please feel welcome joining us! 

If you are able to bring your own equipment - binoculars and field guides – please do so. We will bring some extra binoculars and fold-out field guides so that we can limit sharing among participants.  
Dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes. 
The bird banding area and the trail for the walk are not easily handicapped accessible. 

We acknowledge that these lands we will explore are the traditional, ancestral and contemporary lands of the Narragansett, Nahaganset, Wôpanâak, and Pokanoket nations.  
We are grateful to these local indigenous nations for being the first to steward these lands and waters, and for continuing that stewardship in the present and into the future.  

These birding adventures began in 2018 as part of the Urban Bird Treaty Program, and in 2019, Providence was designated a Bird Treaty City. To read more about the Urban Bird Treaty and other participating cities, visit the website and check out the Storymap.
