The Dundery Brook trail runs through a forested wetland and then into an open meadow and pond habitat. Seasonal changes in flora and fauna can be observed all year long. Highlights include the Spring return of migratory birds and emergence of amphibians of all kinds. Flowering wetland plants that include jack-in-the-pulpit and some very rare plants can be observed along the trail. This is is a fairly new trail. The Nature Conservancy of RI opened this trail in June 2012. The entire trail is on raised decking until you reach Bumblebee Pond, at that point we can take a little walk further around the pond and then return the way we came. iF THE GRASS IS REAL HIGH WE WILL NOT GO TOO FAR OFF THE END OF THE RAISED TRAIL. TICKS!
