2082 Victory Highway, Coventry, 401-949-5454
This Audubon refuge is named after Maxwell Mays, a folk artist best known for his paintings of historic Rhode Island. Mays donated 295 acres of land as part of his life estate and, in October 2011, it opened as the Mawell Mays Wildlife Refuge.
We will follow the easy 1.3 mile trail to Carr’s Pond, a beautiful 11-acre pond which is home to river otters and beavers, as well as many types of fish and invertebrates. There is opportunity to extend your hike if you wish.
We will meet in the parking lot at 11:00am and start our hike promptly at 11:15am. Be sure to bring plenty of snacks and water. Click here for a list of guidelines for hiking with kids.
