Blackstone Parks Conservancy

Due to expected inclement weather this Sunday, the duck walk has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 24th.  We apologize for any confusion.

Winter brings a new population of ducks to Providence who have flown down from the north to take advantage of Rhode Island’s relative warmth and fish filled waters. We will have a good chance to see at least seven kinds of waterfowl that only visit Providence in the winter months, as well as seeing some of our year round birds. Join us for a free Guided Winter Duck Walk along the Seekonk River and adjacent Blackstone Park in Providence. Our walk is sponsored by the Blackstone Parks Conservancy and will be run by Dan Berard, Naturalist and Ornithologist.

The Narragansett Boat Club has generously offered the use of their deck for observation, and our walk will begin and end there, finishing with coffee and hot chocolate. Children can take home a free copy of the BPC Winter Ducks Coloring Book!  Binoculars are highly recommended – we will have a few extra pairs to lend. Children are welcome to take advantage of the free nature program running concurrently on making bird feeders in the Blackstone Park woods adjacent to the boat club or can join along in the walk.

At Narragansett Boat Club, 2 River Road aka Rive Drive, Providence, RI 02906.
