Your generous donations are the lifeblood of our operations. Your support enables us to conserve open space, undertake projects to protect our water supply and watershed area, promote local food production, and educate local youth about conservation. With your help, ALT has conserved 2,575 acres of open space — over 10% of our island! — since 1990. Thank you!
Little Creek Preserve
Little Creek Preserve is a spectacular 15.6-acre property that abuts the Sakonnet Greenway Trail, off of Bramans Lane in Portsmouth. We must raise $368,000 by November 1, 2017 to permanently conserve this property, which is under immediate threat of subdivision and development. Your support is important!
The Little Creek River headwaters originate from a freshwater spring on the property and eventually empty into the Sakonnet River, three miles to the south. The wetlands, headwaters, pond and natural spring make it extremely valuable from a water resources perspective. They provide excellent habitat for a range of amphibian and avian species, including songbirds and waterfowl. Wood ducks, spring peepers, woodchucks, turkeys, resident and migratory songbirds, barn owls and various small mammals are all at home on this beautiful site. Its acquisition would expand recreational and educational opportunities from the existing trail system and create a larger network of protected wildlife areas on Aquidneck Island.
Our great thanks to those who have already made donations to save Little Creek Preserve. Gifts over $1,000 are recognized as Leadership Gifts. Please consider making a gift to help ALT conserve this important property. Each gift is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Spruce Acres Farm
Spruce Acres Farm, a beautiful 22.7-acre farm on the Center Island Greenway, is the newest conserved property on Aquidneck Island. Your support will help us bring this centrally-located property to public accessibility, ultimately providing a valuable community asset to all island residents and visitors.
Over 460 individual donors have contributed to the campaign to conserve this land. Your donation to Spruce Acres Farm will help us reach the final step. Thank you!
