Shannock Road, South Kingstown
We’re teaming up with the South Kingstown Land Trust for the first of their “All Ages ParkRx Hikes”. This is a pilot program of the RI Land Trust Council based on the National ParkRx Initiative, in which healthcare providers “prescribe” time in nature to encourage a healthier lifestyle.
We’ll explore the easy, mostly flat 3-mile trail through pine barrens and woodlands and past the old Browning Homestead. If you need to shorten your outing, there are options to do so. The parking lot for this park is quite small, so please be sure to give yourself enough time to find a parking spot on Shannock Rd. or Moraine Ct. and meet us at the trail head. And please be certain to be respectful and mindful of local residents’ driveways and mailboxes.
And you can earn 5,000 points through the Zoo’s Nature Swap. Participants in the program bring in natural “found” items to collect points for swapping with items in their collection. Find out more information here.
