Here at the Westerly Land Trust we are committed to providing guided outdoor experiences for the public year-round. Each month we offer unique community hikes that include seasonal refreshments. Monthly hikes are FREE to WLT members and $10 for not-yet members. Special events (with an even greater spread of food and beverage) are $5 for WLT members and $15 for not-yet members.
Each week we have either a guided hike (fall, winter, and spring) or a guided paddle (summer) on Thursday. Thursday hikes and paddles are FREE for all. All walks are at 10:00 AM unless stated to the contrary. Thursday hikes 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 the target group being agile seniors.

We hope you will join us for these outdoor adventures! It is a great opportunity to meet new people, get outside and have a great time!
The benefits of nature for mental and physical health are innumerable. Here at the Westerly Land trust, we are grateful to play a role in connecting our community to the great outdoors for the holistic benefit of body, mind and soul. Wellness in the Woods is a series of outdoor events that was brought on by the pandemic and the increased interest in health and use of outdoor spaces. We are now entering our third year and our wellness programs are continuing to grow. All events are run in conjunction with highly trained and certified individuals/partners such as BarreCoast, Dr. Dierdre O’Connor, Westerly Track and Athletic Club, certified local yoga teachers, and certified mindful outdoor guides. We hope you will join us as we tap into the many benefits that nature has to offer.
