Five Things You Need To Know Today, February 19

Today is Tuesday, Feb. 19. Here are five things you need to know:


Hike and Seal Watch: Looking for something to do with the kids today while they're on school vacation? RI DEM is hosting several free events this week, including today's Guided Hike and Seal Watch at John H. Chafee Nature Preserve in North Kingstown. The 2 ½ mile walk is relatively easy and participants may also catch a glimpse of numerous birds, including loons, cormorants, gulls and mergansers. The walks will take place on the hour at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. The walks begin at the parking areas on Route 1-A. Hikers are encouraged to dress appropriately as the area can be extremely cold in the winter wind. Click here for more info on this week's events.
