The Rhode Island Youth Conservation League helped the Land Trust build the first bridge on our Bradner Preserve.
Great bunch of people — and, man, what hard workers! You can learn a little bit more about their conservation efforts in this video on YouTube:
Take a hike. On the new Red Trail at Crawley. It starts to the left of the kiosk and tracks pretty much up the middle of the preserve through some interesting terrain, including some beech grove, boulder and ledge patches, and a short brook-side segment.
Just follow the red blazes.
The Land Trust will construct the second bridge on the Bradner Preserve on Saturday, Sept. 24 starting at 8:30 a.m.
If you want to enjoy some classic RI woodland and get a little exercise, not to mention catching a great vibe after creating a fine architectural wonder, come join us.
Bradner has a very interesting glacial erratic (I learned this term from a geologist friend and use it every chance I get) perched high on a rock outcropping.
Unfortunately, Bradner also experiences young teenagers with paint cans from time to time.
