ALT Annual Fund

The land protection work we do is funded in part by your generous gifts to our Annual Appeal. No gift is too small, and every gift helps us conserve more land. Thank you!

THANK YOU!

Little Creek Open

Little Creek Preserve is now open to the public, and we invite you to visit! Walk the new 1/2-mile nature trail and enjoy the abundant wildlife on this 15.28-acre property. There is a small parking lot on Bramans Lane (across from Malee Terrace), or visitors may park at other Sakonnet Greenway Trail parking areas and hike in to the new Little Creek loop.
