First Day Walk

Saturday, January 1, 2022, 11 am – 12 noon
Haile Farm Preserve
New Industrial Way, Warren, R.I.

Here We Stand At The Door Of The Year*…

You are invited to WLCT’s first annual First Day Walk at Haile Farm Preserve.

The group walk will take us through the variety of trails and terrains of Haile Farm, a former salt water farm with a 300 year history that is now lovingly stewarded by WLCT and open for the community to enjoy.

Please wear weather-appropriate clothing including sturdy waterproof boots.
Bring binoculars if you have them. The wintering birds are plentiful in the woodlands, meadow and marsh.

Parking is available at the trailhead. Get directions on Google.

Looking forward to seeing you!

A Successful Purple Martin Season

The purple martin monitoring season ended on July 7. Here’s a report from one of the monitors: “this is the 5th year of the colony at Jacobs Point and it’s been a wonderful experience to observe the establishment and increased growth of this colony each and every year. This is the first year that all 12 gourds have had egg producing occupants! Each of the 12 gourds has eggs and/or nestlings, an average of 5 eggs per gourd.” As of June 30 there were 45 nestlings and 16 eggs. See more photographs on the Avian Activities page.

2021 Legislative Grants

The Warren Land Conservation Trust is pleased to announce the receipt of 2021 legislative grants. One grant was from the House of Representatives sponsored by Representatives June Speakman and Jason Knight. The other was from the Senate sponsored by Senator Walter Felag.

The funds will be used primarily to foster the land trust’s stewardship program. Additionally, they will support public access to the recently acquired Sowams Meadow Preserve by constructing a viewing platform overlooking the Palmer River marsh.

The land trust is grateful for the ongoing support of our legislative delegation in achieving the mission of the Warren Land Conservation Trust
