Sprague Farm Walk on May 8
On Saturday, May 8th, join the WRWC for a pleasant 2 hour hike at Sprague Farm in Glocester. If you’ve been in the Fall or Summer – I bet you’ll find it an altogether different experience in the Spring. No walk in nature is ever the same walk twice. Consisting of nearly 1,200 acres of forest, Sprague Farm has several miles of foot paths created by the Glocester Land Trust. Most trails have a gentle slope and visit scenic ledge vistas. You’ll see stands of Striped Maple, a glacial fen, an Atlantic White Cedar wetland, several fields, miles of stone walls, old stone slab bridges over several streams, the Sprague family cemetery, and stone foundation walls for barns and farmhouses. It’s a real gem.
