If ever a hike could make you appreciate the efforts of conservation organizations, this is it. Surrounded on all sides by development, Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge offers a welcome slice of nature in the midst of chain stores and strip malls. You will definitely feel tucked away in this 120-acre refuge which houses the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s headquarters, especially as you crest the pine- and oak-covered hill that marks the site. This is a great place to teach kids about the importance of land preservation. If your children are too young to understand this concept, they will still enjoy the stream, pond, rock walls, forest, and meadow filled with birds and birdhouses.
