Rhode Island Land Trust Days returns in August. We are using Land Trust Days MeetUp to encourage everyone to take walks during the COVID-19 crisis.
Staying active and maintaining your physical and mental health is especially important as we “shelter in place.” Taking walks and enjoying outdoor spaces helps reduce stress and anxiety, and a great strategy to stay healthy.
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: many events 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.*
Neutaconkanut Hill Conservancy and the Providence Parks Department, along with the Blackstone Heritage Corridor and the RI Land Trust Council invite you to this 1st Saturday of the month guided hike at Neutaconkanut Hill! Come see the natural evidence of the change of seasons firsthand.
Dress for the day's weather - be sure to wear comfortable walking or hiking shoes. This walk is suitable for all ages. Little ones must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Dogs on a leash are also welcomed. Insect repellent is recommended year round as a precaution against ticks which carry Lyme Disease. There are no public restrooms on site.
This walk is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed to help support these events and the work of the Conservancy. No advance reservations are required.
