Join tree expert, Paul Dolan at Snake Den Farm, a 150–acre farm managed by the Northern Rhode Island Conservation District. The farm is located within the boundary of Snake Den Park, a 744-acre State Park that stretches from Hartford Avenue to Greenville Avenue, along the Brown Avenue Historic District. The farm was founded in 1789, and maintained as a working farm for over 200 years.
We will walk about 1.3 miles exploring trees on a typical Rhode Island wood lot and areas of first successional fields. Since this will be in early April, most of the tree ID will depend on cues other than leaves. A relatively easy walk with great views.
We will gather at the farm. Park by the kiosk.
This walk is a part of our First Thursday Botanizing Walk Series.
