Rego Farmland

Help Conserve Two Properties!

Please help ALT permanently conserve Rego Farmland and Jones Preserve! These two Portsmouth properties feature prime farmland and superb wildlife habitat. They are part of the iconic viewscape along East Main Road and are at high risk of development. Let’s protect them forever!

Citizen Planning 101

ALT and GrowSmart RI will present online workshops for each municipality about the land use planning process. Workshops will provide information about ways people can advocate within their planning and zoning boards, and city and town councils. The October 20 workshop is geared to all island residents. Details and registration link here.

Art & Writing Contest

Aquidneck Island students are invited to enter artwork and/or written work (short essay or poem) in the ALT 2021 Art & Writing Contest. Work should portray or describe the student’s favorite vista on the island. Enter using our easy submission portal by noon on Friday, November 19. Winners receive generous cash prizes and ALT membership!

Volunteer with ALT

Volunteer with ALT at the Newport Marathon on Sunday, October 10! You will be outside (socially distanced) with other ALT supporters, cheering on the racers and helping ALT at the same time, since ALT receives a generous grant from the race organizers to help fund our mission. Free t-shirt and an exciting morning outside!

Build-out Analysis

The build-out analysis we commissioned from Sasaki & Associates is complete. Its projections are sobering; if development and conservation levels continue as projected, all of the unconserved land on Aquidneck Island will be developed by 2050. Read the full report here.

2020 Annual Report

The annual report for ALT’s fiscal year 2020 has been mailed out to current donors. If you would like to receive a hard copy, please let us know and we will send one. Thank you to all of our supporters for being our partners in preservation!
