August 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This walk has been cancelled due to the forecast for high heat.

Opened in September 2021, the Nature Conservancy’s Moshassuck River Preserve offers three miles of blazed trails in a landscape of New England hardwood forest, river banks and glacial boulders. Witch-hazel, spicebush, ironweed and cardinal flower all flourish in the understory, and if we are lucky we may spot a pileated woodpecker. Cheryl Wiitala, TNC’s preserves manager, will lead the walk.

We will meet at the preserve parking lot, 3 Sherman Avenue, Lincoln, RI 02865, located next door to the Fairlawn Golf Course.  Directions below.

This walk is a part of our First Thursday Botanizing Walk Series. See our Botanizing Walks home page for important details you should know about the walks in this series.
