Block Island National Wildlife Refuge

This offshore refuge is a haven for migratory birds. Made up almost entirely of dunes and beaches, birders will delight in the sites pristine beauty. Fall is the most opportune time to make the trek. Many songbirds make a short stopover here before continuing their migration south.

No established trails exist here, but the sandy beaches are accessible and the island is small enough to take in regardless. Although small, this island sees its share of diverse plants and animals in any season.
