There is always something exciting happening at the Norman Bird Sanctuary! With over 300 acres and seven miles of hiking trails, there is plenty to see at all times of the year! You can bring your binoculars and go for a walk along our well-maintained trails. You will be sure to see a variety of local and migratory birds, depending on the season!
Established in 1949 at the bequest of Mabel Norman Cerio, the Norman Bird Sanctuary, under the charge of her will, was to maintain the land “for the propagation, preservation, and protection of birds, and where birds and bird life may be observed, studied, taught, and enjoyed by lovers of nature and by the public generally so interested in a spirit of humanity and mercy.”
NBS is a mature 501(c)3 nonprofit that has maintained steady growth throughout its history. Over the years, NBS has grown to include more than 325 acres of diverse habitats, and its mission remains true to Mabel Norman Cerio’s original vision. The Sanctuary is a community organization that has impacted the quality of life on Aquidneck Island and across the state for over sixty years.
