Join tree expert Paul Dolan on a walk along the Browning Mill Pond Trail, a 1.6 mile loop passing through a typical southern Rhode Island woodland habitat of pine and oak. Along the way we will encounter mysterious abandoned foundations, piles of stones and other long-forgotten structures— remnants of Rhode Island’s past residents, the English, Dutch and Native Americans. Come prepared for muddy conditions.
