Little Creek Preserve

We did it! Little Creek Preserve will be permanently conserved and become a publicly-accessible open space, thanks to the generous support of over 300 individuals, businesses, and foundations. Donations to Little Creek are still much needed for site improvements. Thank you, Aquidneck Island!
