2022 Farm Dinner- SOLD OUT
After two years of reimagining the Farm Dinner, we are headed back out to the field to enjoy this culinary experience as it was originally intended. You’ll dine al fresco on a four-course meal prepared by local chefs using ingredients grown in our community.
The Farm Dinner is the Westerly Land Trust’s largest fundraiser of the year, and by attending this event, you are supporting the conservation and management of more than 1,700 acres and 30 miles of hiking trails, in addition to environmental programing for all ages.

Annual Bird Walks and Social

Whether you’re birding for the first time or you’ve been birding for years, this is an event you won’t want to miss. Each May, WLT hosts our annual bird walks just in time for International Migratory Bird Day. Join us for a brisk, cool morning walk as we look and listen for birds along the trails that wind through Westerly’s woodlands, waterways and grasslands. Keep track of your findings because we meet up after the walks for a social to discuss what we found.
The pandemic has caused us to press pause on the Forage Dinner, but we hope to return in 2023. In normal years, the Westerly Land Trust hosts a Wild Game Dinner in April to benefit our conservation work. This is a feast of wonderful, foraged food prepared by some of Westerly’s well-known chefs, a truly unique culinary adventure that supports the Westerly Land Trust’s conservation efforts.
