Rhode Island’s Land Trust Council is inviting the public to enjoy all of the green space the environmental coalition has preserved over the years. Organizers have planned more than 50 outdoor events across the state, starting with a walk Friday night in Bristol to admire the rare blue moon.
Rhode Island Land Trust Director, Rupert Friday said the events known as “Land Trust Days” provide a chance to unplug and reconnect with nature.
“There’s open spaces in many communities that land trusts have protected, and places where people can get outdoors, relax, unwind, breath fresh air, and we’re hoping Land Trust Days help people connect with those places,” Friday said.
The organizations estimates that more than a quarter of Rhode Island's land is protected by the land trusts that make up the council.
The events for Land Trust Days continue through October 4th.
