Westerly Land Trust welcomes you to join hike leader, Donna Anderson, on an easy, flat walk through a coastal preserve with a variety of native grasses and late summer wildflowers, butterflies (this is a haven for butterflies), birds and bats. We will meet at the Quail Run Trailhead.
For all hikes, be sure to wear shoes appropriate for the natural conditions that may include rocks, roots and mud along the paths. In warmer months, come prepared with insect repellent for your comfort, but it is also recommended year round for prevention of Lyme disease.
You may reach out to hike leader, Donna, at 203-470-4566. Or email questions to the Westerly Land Trust to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Trust at 401-315-2610. For more information on the trust, you can visit the Westerly Land Trust Facebook, or their website.
