Salt Pond Safari at Winnapaug Farm Preserve

August 18 @ 9:45 am - 11:30 pm

Free

Join us for some fun in the sun at Westerly Land Trust’s scenic Winnapaug Farm Preserve! Salt Ponds Coalition will take children on a Salt Pond Safari to introduce them to the wonders of Winnapaug Pond. Using a 30′ seine net, we will do our best to catch a variety of aquatic creatures to introduce to the children.  The kids get hands-on experience with salt pond ecology-plan on them getting wet!
Meet at the trailhead at Winnapaug Farm Preserve. Drive past the open red gate at 117 Shore Rd and park in the field along the wooded edge of the property. From there, we’ll take a walk through a brief wooded stretch of the preserve to access the salt pond. A portion of the trail is uneven- waterproof boots or sturdy water closed-toe water shoes are recommended. We will leave the parking area at 10 AM. Please be there at least 10 minutes early to check in–we don’t want to miss you! Safaris generally last about 1.5 hours.

Pre-registration is required as we can only comfortably accomodate about 15 children. Please contact Alicia at saltpondscoalition@gmail.com (or call 401-322-3068) for more information and to register.
