Audubon Society of Rhode Island Hawks & Hoots
A Celebration of Birds of Prey
September 12 & 13, 2020
Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium, 1401 Hope Street (Route 114), Bristol, RI
(August 10, 2020) - Hawks and owls are a force in nature. With long sharp talons, amazing strength, and highly developed eyesight and hearing, these astounding birds are superior hunters of the avian world.
New for 2020, Audubon hosts Hawks & Hoots, a celebration of birds of prey! (Note that with large group restrictions in place due to COVID19, Audubon has rescheduled the annual Raptor Weekend to 2021.)
Get up-close to hawks and owls in small-group stations, safely distanced throughout the grounds of the Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium in Bristol. Talk with Audubon educators who care for these birds, learn about their amazing adaptations, and discover the various habitats that they call home. This is a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and take photos! Children will receive a special Hawks & Hoots fun pack to take home.
Designed with safety in mind, Hawks & Hoots is a birding celebration for nature enthusiasts of all ages. Each two-hour outdoor session is limited to 40 guests, divided into “flocks” of ten people. Each “flock” will be guided by an Audubon staff member as they move through the owl and hawk stations. The Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium exhibit hall and Nature Shop will be open to ticketed guests for a limited time after visiting the owl and hawk stations.
Face masks and social distancing are required. Participants must bring their own masks. Advance registration is required, tickets will not be sold at the door. Register early as each session is limited to 40 guests.
Note: The Audubon Nature Center and Aquarium and refuge trails will be closed to the public for this special event. Ticketed guests only.
