This walk, the second in our 2018 series Plants & Their Places which is offered in conjunction with the Connecticut Botanical Society, takes us to Palmer River Salt Marsh, Warren, RI.

The Warren Land Conservation Trust has preserved a beautiful salt marsh on the Palmer River. Behind the marsh is a Maritime Woodland community with large oaks and red maples, with a lush understory. Some uncommon species we might incur include Ptilimnium capillaceum (Atlantic mock bishop-weed), Polygala cruciata (drum-heads milkwort), Bolboschoenus robustus (sea-coast tuber-bulrush), Cirsium horridulum (yellow thistle).

• The walk is slated for 4 hours but could be shorter.
• Wet feet are likely.  The time was chosen to coincide with low tide
• We recommend taking appropriate protective measures against sun and insects.
• Bring food and water

Directions pending.
