The Lewis Farmhouse, Block Island, RI, is a great place for a birding vacation! Why? The American Bird Conservancy has named Block Island a globally important bird area and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) named it one of 12 Last Great Places in the Western Hemisphere.  It is a critical stopover on the Atlantic Flyway for thousands of migratory shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors, and songbirds that find sanctuary here each spring and fall.  The Block Island Bird Banding Station has contributed to the national USGS Bird Banding Laboratory since 1967.  In a typical migration season over 250 species are banded and reported. Block Island exemplifies an exceptional partnership in public/private conservation activity.  With strong local leadership and assistance from many conservation groups, preserved land has grown from 2% to 43% since the 1970ís.  The Lewis Family has been in the forefront of these efforts.  The Farmhouse sits amidst 400 conserved acres.  Most of Lewis Farm is now a wildlife preserve owned by the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and TNC.  Block Island is a popular summer tourist destination known for excellent bicycling, hiking, sailing, fishing, and beaches.  Twenty-eight miles of nature trails are maintained by TNC and the Block Island Conservancy.Contact:  Kay Lewis, 401-466-2113 or lewisdeepwater2@aol.com
