Exquisitely carved songbirds, raptors, waterfowl and other wildlife will be showcased at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island Bird and Wildlife Carving Exposition on November 4 & 5 at the Audubon Environmental Education Center, 1401 Hope Street (Route 114,) Bristol, Rhode Island.
Over 17 acclaimed and award-winning artists from throughout New England and the Northeast will exhibit their incredibly life-like carvings of birds and other wildlife throughout the facility.
