Open year-round during daylight, the 242-acre Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is an oasis for migratory birds and an inviting winter home for the multicolored harlequin duck. For the better part of four centuries, the area was farmed and grazed; during the Second World War the U.S. Navy established a rifle range and communications center; today Sachuest Point, surrounded by popular sand beaches, is a quieter destination for those seeking a more wild experience on the Rhode Island shore.
