Block Island National Wildlife Refuge
Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, named after the Dutch explorer Adriaen Block, lies 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island on the Outer Lands coastal archipelago. The island was incorporated by Rhode Island in 1672 and today 40 % of the island is dedicated to preservation with an island population of 1,000 people. There are 17 miles of beach on the island and the 134 acres of conserved lands were established as a refuge in 1973. As recently as 2016 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approved the Great Thicket National Wildlife Refuge for managing shrub land habitat for the animal life in the Northeast. Together this land is an important area for migratory songbirds which pass by the island each fall, not surprisingly the island is a popular destination for birdwatchers.
