Audubon’s Summer Camps get kids ages 3½ to 15 outside exploring our local environment —fields, forests, ponds, streams, and the coast of Narragansett Bay.  Our camps are conveniently located at our wildlife refuges in Bristol, and Seekonk.  It’s the perfect environment for adventure, exploration, learning, and loads of fun!  It’s what summer camp should be!

Big Year in a Little State
Shortly after the publication of Roger Tory Peterson's field guide to North American birds in the 1930s, an informal competition began among birders to see as many species as possible in a single year.

Throughout the 1950s, BIG YEAR participants were listing upwards of 598 species of North American birds within a single year. While this number seemed staggering at the time, technologies continued to improve as did the ease of travel, now allowing individuals to access more remote regions of North America in search of new species.

This resulted in year after year of records being smashed as individuals became more willing to spend the money and time in pursuit of every species possible in North America. The current record, set in 2013  stands at 747 species!

The competition has now attained legendary status thanks to published books from previous BIG YEAR competitors as well as the release of the popular movie "The Big Year".

The Audubon Society of Rhode Island is promoting a BIG YEAR IN A LITTLE STATE in the spirit of the famous competition. Funds raised through the competition will be used to further Audubon's mission of protecting birds and their habitats through education and advocacy.
