The Ocean View Foundation educates visitors and islanders on the natural history and beauty of Block Island. We encourage the celebration of its maritime culture, vernacular architecture and preserved open space.  The Foundation has preserved four-plus properties on the Island. The most visible and the first project encompasses a little over an acre, on a beautiful site, overlooking the Old Harbor. It was once the grounds of a grand late 19th century Victorian hotel. The Ocean View Foundation is host to annual community events held at the Pavilion: Earth Mother's Day in May and a Community Pot Luck in October. During the summer, the Pavilion is the venue for a weekly schedule of programs that include a Nature Walk around the site, Bird Banding, Bird Census, and an Art & Nature drawing program.
