Thursday Hike: Flora Whiteley/Cottrell Preserve, Westerly– End of Season Get Together

Thursday June 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The WLT’s Flora Whitely Preserve abuts the Pawcatuck River upstream of the Potter Hill dam and features a boat portage at the bridge. The WLT Cottrell Preserve is 21 acres which is boarded on the north by the Pawcatuck River and on the south by the Westerly Town Forest. It will be a moderate woods walk. Parking is still a challenge so we will meet at Flora Whitely Preserve on Potter Hill Road. We will return to Flora Whitely to have a picnic. Bring your own lunch, beverage and lawn chair.

To sign up, contact hike leader: David Prigmore # (401) 348-2855.  Email: [email protected]

Thursday hikes are FREE. Be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Hikes leave promptly.
  • Ending times are estimated as it difficult to ascertain when it will finish due to number of people, how fast/slow the hikers walk, etc.
  • Please sign up with leader so that person will know how many are coming. If no one signs up the leader may not show up.
  • Inclement weather cancels and if in doubt, contact leader.
  • If you wish to bring a dog please contact the leader as some properties do not allow them. However, if a dog is present, they must be leashed at all times.
