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!

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. Native and migratory birds, spring peepers, and salamanders all live at Little Creek. 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.

Build-out Analysis

Over 150 Islanders attended our public forum in August 2019 to learn more about a build-out analysis of Aquidneck Island that ALT commissioned from Sasaki & Associates. The consultants used statistical data to project two future scenarios, based on continued trends vs. adoption of “Smart Growth” tenants. The final report will be made public later this year; see the two-page synopsis here.

Register now for a Full Moon Walk on Tuesday, November 12 at 5:30 p.m. It will be a chilly fall evening and (hopefully!) perfect for watching a beautiful moon rise. Bring a flashlight and wear sturdy shoes. Location to be announced. Free.

ALT Trails

Looking for a walk, run, or hike on a nature trail? ALT offers three trail systems, spread over dozens of conserved properties. The longest trail is the Sakonnet Greenway Trail, which is over 10 miles long! Shorter trails are easily accessible at Spruce Acres and Oakland Forest. See you on the trail!
