Rhode Island’s Land Trust Council is inviting the public to enjoy all of the green space the environmental coalition has preserved over the years. Organizers have planned more than 50 outdoor events across the state, starting with a walk Friday night in Bristol to admire the rare blue moon.

Rhode Island Land Trust Director, Rupert Friday said the events known as “Land Trust Days” provide a chance to unplug and reconnect with nature.
