NOTICE - CLOSED TRAIL and NEW ONE OPENED

Our trail at 215 Nate Whipple Highway, The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp is TEMPORARILY CLOSED due to FLOODING.   A new BEAVER family has moved onto the property.  We are exploring solutions.  Will keep this Post updated.
Update: We met with RI Department of Environmental Management on July 22nd.  We will be applying for a DEM wetlands alteration permit to solve the problem.
NEW ACCESS OPENED, AUGUST 12, 2015:
We have opened a new  trailhead at 60 Pound Road.  This new access includes off road parking.  The trail is just under a mile and travels north to Nate Whipple Highway where the beaver flooding is.
A new map will soon be posted that will show the area of "UNDER CONSTRUCTION".

We are currently working on upgrading our four trail map brochures for our four public properties.   The new maps will display a full page map on the inside of the brochure for improved reading.

About The Cumberland Land Trust

The Cumberland Land Trust is a private, non-profit, charitable, conservation organization run by a dedicated group of volunteers. Our mission is to preserve the natural resources of Cumberland for present and future generations by preserving land for open space.

Since incorporation in 1989, we have protected 354 acres of land acquired through purchase, donation and conservation easements.

The Land Trust applies for grants from private foundations and organizations and from government sources to help acquire select properties including streams, ponds, wetlands, open space, working farms, scenic and natural sites and historically significant properties.

The Cumberland Land Trust is a sponsor of The Land Trust Alliance, a national organization of land trusts, and works closely with The Nature Conservancy of RI, the RI Audubon Society, and the 43 other land trusts in the state.
