Take a morning bird walk in Cumberland

CUMBERLAND – Cumberland Parks and Recreation is teaming up with Mary Grande, wildlife outreach coordinator for the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management Division of Fish and Wildlife, for family-friendly, morning bird walks this month.

Learn about habitat conservation, how to identify birds by sight and sound, and the importance of birds to R.I.’s ecosystem. The programs are free and all materials are included.
