...building an ecologically healthy future in a sustainable economy

Open Space Preservation

Located at ground zero for suburban sprawl in Rhode Island, the South Kingstown Land Trust nevertheless leveraged a variety of private and public agencies in an exemplary collaboration for a critical environmental priority of the town: land preservation. Partners include: Nature Conservancy, Town of South Kingstown, RI Department of Environmental Management, Narrow River Land Trust, US Fish and Wildlife Service, RI Greenways Council, Audubon Society of RI, Perryville Preservation Association, and South Kingstown Bridle Lanes Association.

The projects will improve and protect habitat and species, foster sustainable development, and allow continuity of trail and bike paths.
