Land Trust Days are August 20 through October 17!

Discover Rhode Island’s protected open spaces where you can get outdoors and enjoy nature. Go on a full moon walk, explore beautiful forests, enjoy kite flying on the beach, and attend an open trail day. These events will introduce you to some of Rhode Island’s most spectacular/breathtaking protected places. Land Trust Days has something for everyone!

Some activities might require pre-registration - so be sure to read the event description. Most activities are free, but a few may have a fee to participate.

Land Trust Days Guidelines:

  • Masks will not be required at Land Trust Days events (most of the events are held outdoors), but please stay home if you are feeling sick.
  • Bring your own sunscreen, bug spray, and water. Hosts might not provide these items for shared use during their activities.
