« All Events

As part of this year’s “Land Trust Days”, the Westerly Land Trust invites your child on a Salt Pond Safari! Using a 30′ seine net, the Salt Pond Coalition will introduce a variety of aquatic creatures to the children. The kids will get wet! The morning includes a walk through a brief wooded stretch of the preserve. (Waterproof boots or sturdy water-closed-toe water shoes are recommended.)

Pre-registration is required; the event can only accommodate 15 children.

During the Land Trust Days nearly 80 activities from August to October, you can:

  • Go on a full moon walk
  • Explore some of Rhode Island’s best trails
  • Enjoy the view from the highest points in Newport and Providence, and look out across a four-mile vista in Glocester
  • Tour farms
  • Have fun at family festivals
  • Learn about insects, champion trees and edible wild plants
  • Learn the history of stone walls and what the geology of the stones tell us
  • Watch migrating birds being banded for research, and
  • Go paddling in Warren.
