This was a nice and short walk. This Audubon property is where their educational center is located. It is a small stretch of land between Hope Street and where the Warren River meets Narragansett Bay. From the parking lot I followed the path around to the back of the building and then followed the path to the left through a large open field. At the bottom of the hill I then turned left onto a boardwalk that goes through some wooded area. After crossing the bike path the boardwalk continues through areas of marsh where I could hear plenty of rustling from birds. At the end of the boardwalk there is a nice view of the bay. I retraced my steps on the way back.
