Thanks to support from hundreds of generous donors, ALT has recently conserved two key properties: Spruce Acres Farm and Little Creek Preserve. Both will soon be open to the public for hiking, bird watching, picnicking and other healthy enjoyments. Improvements are needed for each, and we thank you in advance for helping ALT to maximize the potential of these beautiful sites. Your contributions will provide great benefit to our island community. Thank you!
Little Creek Preserve (LCP)
Little Creek Preserve is a spectacular 15.6-acre property that abuts the Sakonnet Greenway Trail, off of Bramans Lane in Portsmouth. With the generous support of hundreds of donors, ALT has raised the funds required to conserve it forever. Your donation to the Trailside Park will help us make the necessary site improvements to make this property publicly accessible. Improvements include trail and boardwalk creation, parking upgrades, and park amenities such as benches and picnic tables. Every gift is important – thank you!
Spruce Acres Farm (SAF)
Spruce Acres Farm has been purchased and conserved, and will open later this year as the newest public park on the island. ALT asks your help in completing one of the signature projects on the property – the installation educational signage on the property. The topics will be: Site History, Watershed Conservation, Agricultural Heritage, and Local Wildlife. We have been offered a Challenge Grant by the Ocean State Charities Trust to achieve this goal; when we have raised $5,700 toward the project from our loyal supporters, OSCT will provide the final $5,000.
