What we’re about
Join us for the 2023 Rhode Island Land Trust Days
August 25 through October 29!
We also encourage people to take "Do It Yourself" walks - check out ExploreRI.org for 100+ trail maps around the state!
Land Trust Days is a statewide, 2 month celebration of the many special places protected by land trusts. Land trusts across the state host activities to share the special places they are protecting for everyone, young and old to enjoy. These events include guided walks, hot dog roasts, community festivals, full moon walks, farm tours and a whole lot more.
Please note: some events may require registration outside of MeetUp. Please read event descriptions carefully.
*Please note that events are posted to this group on behalf of land trusts across Rhode Island. The members of this group generally do not 'meet up' officially, but rather attend the events as participants. If you'd like to attend with other members, feel free to coordinate in the discussion sections of events.*

- Nocturnal Owl Prowl with the Bristol Land Conservation TrustMt Hope Farm, Bristol, RI$15.00
The Bristol Land Conservation Trust (BLCT) will sponsor an Owl Prowl with Lauren Parmelee, Audubon Society of Rhode Island Senior Director of Education Programs, on Tuesday, December 12.
Join the BLCT and Lauren Parmelee for an informational introduction to owls followed by a nocturnal stroll at Mount Hope Farm to look and listen for them in their natural habitat. During the fall and winter, several owl species nest in Bristol and can be heard calling to each other as they set up their territories and bond with their mates. Owls we may encounter include the Screech, Great Horned or Barred Owl. We never know what we'll hear or see, but participants will learn a lot and have a great nighttime walk.
The event, which runs from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., starts at the Mount Hope Farm barn, 250 Metacom Ave., Bristol, RI. Dress for the weather, wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a flashlight. Parking is in the parking lot behind the barn, which is accessed via the main driveway. The rain/snow date is Wednesday, December 13.
The cash or check only fee is $15 per person, a maximum of $25 for families, and free for BLCT members. All proceeds go to support the BLCT's mission in preserving open space forever.
