Westerly Land Trust would like you to join them for some fun in the sun at Westerly Land Trust’s scenic Winnapaug Farm Preserve! Salt Ponds Coalition will take children on a Salt Pond Safari to introduce them to the wonders of Winnapaug Pond. Using a 30′ seine net, we will do our best to catch a variety of aquatic creatures to introduce to the children. The kids get hands-on experience with salt pond ecology-plan on them getting wet! From there, we’ll take a walk through a brief wooded stretch of the preserve to access the salt pond.
A portion of the trail is uneven- waterproof boots or sturdy water closed-toe water shoes are recommended.
Pre-registration is required by contacting Alicia as we can only comfortably accommodate about 15 children.We will leave the parking area at 10 AM. Please be there at least 10 minutes early to check in–we don’t want to miss you! Safaris generally last about 1.5 hours.
Contact Alicia at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 401-322-3068 in order to register and reserve your spot. Don’t be disappointed – please register early! Indicating your reservation on Meetup or Facebook will not guarantee your spot. For any further questions, you may also find out more through Alicia or check the Westerly Land Trust website and details of this event here.
Winnapaug Farm Preserve is located at 117 Shore Rd in Westerly. Meet at the trailhead at Winnapaug Farm Preserve. Drive past the open red gate at 117 Shore Rd and park in the field along the wooded edge of the property.
