Fisherville Brook Wildlife Refuge

Tips for Birding

This is a good place to look for migrants in the spring and to look for resident bluebirds, swallows and Orchard Orioles in the spring and summer.

About this Location

The 937-acre property contains fields, diverse forest habitats, pond, streams (including a lovely waterfall), and a historic cemetery. Wonderful scenery and pleasant hiking opportunities make Fisherville Brook well worth the visit. The refuge has a grand history and is a great pride to the Audubon Society of Rhode Island.

Take I-95 to RI-4 to RI-102 north. Turn right onto Widow Sweets Road (just after the Exeter Town Clerk’s Office and across from Anderson’s Place). Take the second right onto Pardon Joslin Road (a dirt road). Travel approximately 1 mile. The parking lot is on the right side of the road by a large Fisherville Brook Wildlife Refuge sign.

Important: Pardon Joslin Road can only be accessed by these directions, GPS, Google Maps, and other mobile directions are not accurate due to the road conditions. Please follow these directions to arrive safely at the wildlife refuge.
