Birding by Boat





Birding by Boat


WPWA's Annual Meeting




Boats and Birds!

10am - 12pm

June 3rd or 10th - Rain dates June 4th or 11th


When URI students paddled this section during spring, they identified many different birds from sight and sound. Downy woodpeckers, purple martins, yellow warblers, white-breasted nuthatch, belted kingfisher... the list goes on and on! As part of the national Wild and Scenic River System, the Upper Wood River is designated "wild" due to the lack of development and abundance of wildlife... including birds! 

Get out on the water this June with birding expert Laura Carberry of Audubon Society of RI and paddling expert and naturalist, Denise Poyer, long time WPWA staff member, now retired.

WPWA Annual Meeting

Thursday, May 27th, 6pm

Virtual, on Zoom


Covid shut down so many great get togethers last year... including WPWA's Annual Meeting. With some restrictions still in place, we made the tough choice to host the meeting virtually this year. And we hope you will join us from your favorite place in the watershed... or the comfort of your own home as we review the highlights of 2019 & 20 and elect new members to the Board of Directors.
