Norman Bird Sanctuary's Fireside Lecture: New England Cottontails


Location: Norman Bird Sanctuary 583 3rd Beach Road Middletown, RI, 02842


Join the Norman Bird Sanctuary and Nick Ernst, Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Rhode Island Refuge Complex,  for a Fireside Lecture. Gather by the fire with a Hot Toddy as we discuss the New England Cottontail!

This native rabbit has been severely impacted by habitat loss and competition from introduced Eastern Cottontails. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and its partners have been working to restore this species to part of its original range.

This season, we are offering an additional childcare option for families in our hands-on, STEAM-focused space, called the Curiosity Lab! A Teacher Naturalist will be present while the lecture takes place and a fire roars on in the Studio! You can enjoy an educational lecture, a cozy venue, and a hot toddy while your little one engages in crafting, storytime, and nature play with an educator. We require that all children be fully potty trained. Please fill in all information requested in order to complete your registration for childcare. Register here
