Out There! (Walks, Workshops and Demos)

Land trust members were invited to tour an invasive plant removal project and try out the tools.
Many plants can be IDed in winter, if you know what to look for. URI botany professor Keith Killingbeck leads the walk.

Nearly everyone with a lifelong interest in Nature made that connection through hands-on experiences, often guided by knowledgeable people who were willing to share their discoveries. As important as sit-down lectures are for learning, there’s no substitute for getting “out there.”

Over the years, Survey friends have participated in bird banding demos, mushroom walks, moth mingles, shore seining, glacial geology tours, insect hunts, plant ID workshops, lichen forays, wild seed harvesting workshops, native plant plantings, star watching, and invasive removal demos, among other things.

Outdoor programs are dependent on weather and guide availability so watch the Survey’s social media for announcements, or better yet sign up for the e-news.

In Little Compton people were drawn to the moth light like moths to a light.
