Sowams Woods Walk with Barrington Land Conservation Trust

October 18, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Registration required — see link below.

Experience Sowams Woods in the autumn, with a profusion of fall colors and the glistening waters of Echo Lake. The Barrington Land Conservation Trust, which owns and manages the property, invites all ages to join this free public walk through 12 acres of forested trails.

Sowams Woods was acquired by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust in 2006 after a four-year, two-million dollar campaign that involved widespread support from Barrington residents, the Rhode Island Country Club (which borders the property), the Town of Barrington, the State of Rhode Island, and the federal government.

Located on the ancestral homelands of the Pokanokets, Sowams Woods is rich with history and significance. During the years-long effort to protect the property from development, leaders of the Pokanoket advised and educated the Land Trust on the property’s importance to Indigenous Peoples.

Advance registration is required due to limited parking at the site. The group will meet and park in the dirt parking area at the juncture of North Lake Drive and the former South Lake Drive in Barrington, RI.

Kid-friendly. The terrain is gentle. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy footwear.

Register here.
