Due to the high level of interest in land trust walks on Thanksgiving weekend, please assist us in planning for these walks, by changing your Facebook status to ‘going’ as soon as your plans to attend are set. Thank you! Rhode Island Land Trusts
It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving and all of the food has been eaten – what is there to do next? How about a walk at Grills Preserve with the Westerly Land Trust? This walk on WLT’s 500-acre preserve is over primarily flat terrain often along the Pawcatuck River on clear, wide trails. There is a gorgeous scenic view from the top of aptly named, Big Hill, which requires a bit of steep climbing.
Questions? You may call the Land Trust at: (401) 315-2610. To learn more visit: http://westerlylandtrust.org/event/turkey-trot-at-grills-preserve or visit ExploreRI: http://www.exploreri.org/gSiteReport2.php?siteID=5&src=siteList
