Interest Areas: Environment / Nature, Animals

Established by donation in 1970, Sachuest Point serves as an important stopover and wintering area for migratory birds. Consisting of approximately 250 acres of diverse upland and wetland habitats, the Refuge also supports a great variety of permanent and summer wildlife species.

The trails are open from sunrise to sunset. Sachuest Point Refuge offers Rhode Island's only refuge visitor center and is volunteer run. The building is open year round but hours of operation vary. For current information, phone the center at the phone number listed above. The center is accessible to people with disabilities.

As a unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System, Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, an agency dedicated to the conservation of our nation's fish and wildlife resources.

While on the refuge, you must remain on designated trails. This is to prevent erosion of surrounding areas, as well as to protect you from abundant poison ivy, biting flies, and ticks. In practice, however, many find their way down to the rocky shore, inspecting tidal pools for hermit crabs and gaining better vantage points for viewing the pounding surf.
