Audubon offers a number of programs for pre-school and home-school children at the Environmental Education Center.

At our Environmental Education Center in Bristol, your party can explore and learn on an adventure through our 28-acre outdoor classroom that reaches the shores of the Narragansett Bay.

The 28 acres of land that is now the Claire D.
Nestled in open meadows on the shoreline of Narragansett Bay in scenic Bristol, Rhode Island the Audubon Society of Rhode Island's Environmental Education Center is a natural treasure.

One of Rhode Island 's most Unique Meeting Venues.

How did you spend your play time as a child? Did you go outside and explore the "woods"? While there, did you play capture the flag, hide ‘n' seek, or maybe build a fort? For most adults, the connection to nature began with similar, positive, childhood experiences.

By contrast, today's children are spending less and less time playing outside than in years past; however, they do spend an average of four hours each day watching TV and playing video games. In addition, parents concerned for the safety of their children further limit their outdoor activities. Some schools have even eliminated recess.
