Winter brings some good things! On Sunday, February 19, 2:00 – 3:30, the Blackstone Parks Conservancy Education Committee invites you to join us on a guided walk along the bank of the Seekonk River to observe the “winter ducks”. We will have a good chance to see at least seven kinds of waterfowl that visit Providence only in the winter months (and some that are here year-round). The family-friendly walk will be led by Lauren Parmelee, Senior Director of Education at the Audubon Society of RI.
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. Binoculars are highly recommended – we will have a few extra pairs to lend. Children are welcome and can take home a free copy of the newly revised BPC Winter Duck Coloring Book! Rain date: February 26th.
