A diverse class of children look through microscopes on a table set up outside in a forest

The volunteers of National Wildlife Refuges of Rhode Island conduct an award-winning environmental education program with participants from many elementary schools in Southern Rhode Island. The program seeks to educate schoolchildren, through classroom curricula combined with field-based tours and study, about the importance of barrier beaches and the natural environment. In addition, there are year-round walks and talks conducted by both seasonal interns and staff who are eager to share their enjoyment of nature with you.
