The Sakonnet Preservation Association (SPA) and The Nature Conservancy invite you to take a walk on the Dundery Brook Trail with naturalist/ornithologist, Scott Comings and SPA’s president, Abigail Brooks. They will lead you down the boardwalk trail and through Dundery Brook's hardwood forest and into the Bumble Bee Preserve. Listen to the songbird’s choir and see the indigenous wildlife up close on this suspended walkway that gracefully weaves you through one of Little Compton’s larger protected wetland preserves.
The free walk starts at 11 a.m. at the trail head on Meeting House Lane behind the tennis courts.
