Learn about migrating and year-round woodland and water birds at the park and make a bird feeder and bird collage! Meet at Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive, Providence, RI 02906). Registration required. Masks and distancing strongly encouraged.
We will explore trees’ role in mitigating the effects of climate change while identifying leaves and making leaf art. We will also be collecting canned goods for the RI Food Bank and clean, bagged clothes as a fundraiser for reducing food waste in schools by creating composting infrastructure.
This event is part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series with 15 Minute Field Trips, focusing on community action to protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and combat climate change. Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities. Great for families or to use in the classroom. Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.
This event is led by Melissa Guillet, from 15 Minute Field Trips. Melissa has taught art for over 20 years and is an avid nature-lover involved in gardening, hiking, and collecting data as a citizen scientist.
