One of five national wildlife refuges in Rhode Island, Sachuest Point was farmland used for sheep grazing into the early 1900s and then was used by the U.S. Navy during World War II as a rifle range and communications center. Thick underbrush and some open meadows remain on this prime 242-acre spit of protected land extending out into the Atlantic Ocean. A key stopover and wintering area for migratory birds, the entire preserve is an ornithologist’s dream come true. No dogs. A trail map is posted on a stand.
