Focus on Insects – Guided Walk at Garrison House Acres
September 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Narrow River Land Trusts calls you to witness their contribution to a state-wide celebration of special green spaces just outside your door. Join them for an all-ages guided walk starting at Middlebridge and walking across the bridge to South Kingstown and through the Garrison House Acres Narrow River Land Trust property. This year’s walk will focus on insects with our guides, Rick Enser of the Narrow River Land Trust and David Gregg of the RI Natural History Survey. Learn about the insects that inhabit the shoreline and fields and how NRLT track them. To learn how climate change may be reflected in the insect life we will set up moth traps and use other techniques to record insect diversity and discover trends.
Please wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars, hand lens, and insect protection. No dogs please. Restrooms will not be available.
Send any additional questions via email to Narrow River Land Trust at firstname.lastname@example.org or through phone at 401-595-4554. For more information on the Trust, you can visit the NRLT website
