Join Doug McGrady for the first in his three walks/hikes in our 2019 series Plants & Their Places in Cumberland, RI.  The High Rock Farm Preserve and Scott Brook Preserve encompass a variety of habitats within a Beech/Sugar Maple/Red Oak Forest. The soils here are some of the richest in the state and the display of spring ephemerals is outstanding. With one of the highest concentrations of rare species in Rhode Island there’s always something interesting to see. We’ll browse the woods and power lines for 3-4 hours. There are some small hills and uneven ground.

Parking: Meet at the road side parking area at 186 Scott Rd, Cumberland, RI. (On your phone map, head to 41.95407, -71.42817).
Directions: From RI-122 (Mendon Rd) turn northeast onto Scott Rd. Go 1.1 miles to the parking area on the left (west) side.
