Join us on March 24, 2019 for the first-ever Aquidneck 10K! Rhode Island’s newest road race will run alongside beach grass and sand dunes, through a wildlife refuge and bird sanctuary, and past stunning homes and historic churches, showcasing the beauty of Aquidneck Island.
A portion of all registration fees will be donated to the Norman Bird Sanctuary!
The Norman Bird Sanctuary
Established in 1949, Norman Bird Sanctuary’s mission is 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.”
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 70 years.
