ALT starts monthly “Tails on the Trail”

Bring your four-legged pals and join us for a scenic walk on the Sakonnet Greenway Trail on the first Wednesday of the next few months. ALT staff with support from Wag Nation will host two walks; one in the morning (7:30 am), the other later that day (5:30 pm). Each casual walk will last about an hour (or as long as your schedule allows) and will start from the ALT kiosk located at the trail access point noted below. Please dress appropriately for the weather and trail conditions.
