Blackstone Parks Conservancy
If you look out the windows of our erg rooms, you can see ducks on the water.  But they don’t look like the ducks we see in the summer and they certainly don’t act like the summer ducks.  In fact, some of these ducks are predators, another good reason to shut the river down in deep winter.
On Sunday, February 16nd, you can learn about our winter ducks, who consider Rhode Island their equivalent of Florida. At 2 PM, Dan Berard, noted naturalist, will lead a walk on River Road, spotting and commenting on the birds we see.  The tour will originate in the Narragansett Boat Club and also end there, with coffee and chocolate to warm you up.
