Upcoming Events for April/June

Participate in Clean Up South County with WFC

Join us on April 24 at Noyes Neck Farm at 10 AM to help clean up South County in Celebration of Earth Week

For the last 50 years, April 22nd has been recognized as Earth Day. It began in the United States in 1970 and is now celebrated around the world. In celebration of the 51st Anniversary of Earth Day, land conservation organizations in South County including the Weekapaug Foundation for Conservation, South Kingstown Land Trust, Charlestown Land Trust, Westerly Land Trust, Narrow River Land Trust, Narrow River Preservation Association, Hopkinton Land Trust, and The Watch Hill Conservancy will be organizing trash pick-up events to bring attention to the ongoing problem of littering. Litter is a significant source of pollution. This debris affects our ecological systems, our enjoyment of natural space, and our municipal waste systems. These upcoming events are a great opportunity to make a difference in your community.

Our Earth Week Clean Up will be held 10 am on Saturday, April 24th. We will provide materials at Noyes Neck Farm and volunteers can head out from there. This is a wonderful opportunity to do an initial clean-up before our summer residents begin to return to the area.

WFC Annual Walkabout 

Join us on June 5 at Noyes Neck Farm at 10 AM

We will also have a second walkabout/clean-up date at 10:00 am on Saturday, June 5th, which will provide an additional opportunity for more community involvement to begin the summer season.

Email Rose Cavanagh at rcavanagh@weekapaugfoundation.org if you are interested in either of these events.
