The Weekapaug Foundation Keeping our Unique Corner of the World Green and Wild

Conserving. Caring. Connecting.

The Weekapaug Foundation for Conservation is a non-profit land trust in Westerly and Charlestown, Rhode Island dedicated to preserving and protecting the open land and clean water of the Winnapaug and Quonochontaug salt pond watersheds. Our work includes:


Conservation Land

We protect over a thousand acres of green space, marshes, fields and woodlands, which are habitats for migratory and endangered birds, small mammals and dozens of different plant species. Come explore.


Community Events

From guided nature walks, farm dinners, and get-togethers hosted with our partners, we have a summer packed with ways to connect with the land and each other.


Scholarship Fund

In honor of our beloved trustee, Richard Dumouchel, the Foundation awards one URI student with a scholarship to pursue an education in environmental studies or conservation.
