All About Beavers at Crandall Family Preserve

October 14 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Free

Looking to get outside this fall? Enjoy the beautiful wetland landscape at Crandall Family Preserve this October! On this family-friendly walk, Westerly Land Trust’s Program Coordinator Stacey Jackson, will provide information about the preserve, and guide us on a short walk to the wetland overlook. Joining the land trust for this walk is Mary Grande, Wildlife Outreach Coordinator for RI DEM’s Division of Fish and Wildlife. Mary will be presenting information about Rhode Island’s own ecosystem engineers–beavers! On the walk, you’ll have a chance to see a beaver lodge, learn about this history of beavers in Rhode Island, and about current conservation projects. Binoculars will be provided to scan the swamp for signs of these secretive creatures…we may even spy some waterfowl too! Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a layer or two in case of a chilly October morning.
