Autumn begins with lots of outdoor activities in Rhode Island, including several guided hikes offered by the Rhode Island Land Trusts Council. They are features of Land Trust Days which started Aug. 1 and continue through the end of September. Bring a friend to enjoy the scenic views, green spaces and working farms that are Rhode Island’s 47 land trusts.
Saturday’s walks include a visit with migrating monarch butterflies in Little Compton, a bluebird walk with children’s activities in Cumberland, a full-moon walk in Glocester, strolls through historic farms and more. There will be 10 in all. Two more walks, in Narragansett and Jamestown, are scheduled for Sunday.
