Norman Bird Sanctuary

Located in Middletown, RI, the Norman Bird Sanctuary is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary and environmental education center with more than 325 acres of diverse habitats and 7 miles of hiking trails.

Established in 1949 at the bequest of Mabel Norman Cerio, the Norman Bird Sanctuary, exists to maintain the land to protect the birds and wildlife habitats and be a place where nature could be enjoyed, observed, studied and taught.   Today the Sanctuary offers a robust calendar of year-round events ranging from nature hikes, eco tours, bird watching walks, as well as field trips for scouting and school groups.
