Our Newest Project!

Help ALT permanently conserve a new section of Sweet Berry Farm! This property will be used to grow strawberries and pumpkins. It will expand the corridor of open space known as the Sakonnet Greenway, and will help protect one of our impaired drinking water reservoirs. Your donation is much appreciated!

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.

Newsletter

The 2020 ALT newsletter has been sent to all of our donors; if you would like to read the digital version, you can find it here. Despite the challenges of 2020, ALT remained busy, working to conserve more land and protect our vulnerable drinking water supply. Look for our fiscal year 2020 annual report in February!
