Join us for our free, guided trail walks on Thursdays. We will visit various local conservation properties, including some of our Westerly Land Trust preserves. Walks are between 1 ½ to 3 hours and are open to all ages with our target group being agile seniors. Please keep in mind that these are wooded trails with stumps, roots and rocks so be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction. Bring snowshoes if there is a lot of snow. All walks are at 10:00 AM unless otherwise noted. Our hikes leave promptly so please arrive on time.
April 27 Beavertail State Park, Jamestown
Join us for a breath-taking walk around one of RI’s most beautiful state parks- Beavertail State Park. Rocky coastline and a historic lighthouse make this place truly memorable. This is a mostly flat walk of 3-4 miles and hopefully we will see the Monarch butterflies on their migration trip. Directions: Take Rte 138 to Jamestown and after crossing the bridge take the first exit and follow to the end. Take a right go thru the stop sign and go to Beavertail Park about 4 miles. We will park in first parking lot.
In State Management areas everyone is required to wear 200 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the last Thursday in April to the last day in May, annually.
