Exciting News! And we need your Help!

LCNK has received at grant from the Rhode Island Foundation to create plans to build a foot bridge at Mill Cove that would connect our Bush Hill property to Wilson Park.  From the press release:

The Land Conservancy of North Kingstown received $10,000 to restore a historic walking path in Wickford Village. The path traverses the Lower Mill Cove salt marsh, connecting Wilson Park, the town boat launch and nearby neighborhoods with the Conservancy’s Bush Hill Preserve and historic Wickford Village. The grant will support the initial engineering studies, permitting and fundraising needed to stabilize the eroded banks of a circa 1700s causeway, install a footbridge, clear trails and add signage.

“A culvert in the earthen causeway built in the 1700s by farmers to connect their pastures and woods collapsed about 20 years ago, severing this tie among the community. Our work will once again make this historic pathway accessible for all to use and enjoy,” said Gidget Loomis, project co-leader.”
