A Great Swamp Escapade, South Kingstown, RI

August 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Anne Wagner and Kathy Barton, veteran RIWPS walk leaders, on Saturday, August 20, 2022 from 9:00 to 11:00 am, as we go adventuring in search of the botanical denizens of the Great Swamp Management Area, in South Kingstown, RI. Against the colorful backdrop of white boneset, yellow goldenrod and the lavender pink Joe Pye Weed, we expect  to find water plants, especially sedges and rushes, when they are the most interesting. For those of you who went on our Welcome Spring Walk in March, this is also a chance to enjoy some of the  changes that have occurred since that visit.  (Click here to see blog item about that walk which includes a list of plants that were seen.)

The trail is dry and flat, but a hat, sunscreen, water, insect repellent and sturdy footwear are recommended.

Rain date: Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 9:00 to 11:00 am.  Wearing orange required on and from this date!

There is no charge for this walk but the number of participants is limited to 15 given the nature of the walk.

Registration is required (see below).  Directions for where to meet up will be sent to registrants a few days before the walk.

Should you register and then are unable to come, please contact office@RIWPS.org as soon as possible.   We are trying to avoid a situation where late cancellation or no shows mean that people who are on the waiting list cannot attend.
