Coastal Field Study at Haile Farm Preserve

During this field study, we will explore the unique ecology and climate of Rhode Island’s coastline at Haile Farm Preserve in Warren. From red maple woodlands to large swaths of salt marsh, Haile Farm Preserve offers rich examples of the botanical diversity that can be found along coastal areas. Led by botanist Shannon Kingsley, you will learn about the plant species growing in these different habitats, the ecological importance of salt marshes, and how to collect a proper voucher specimen. Shannon will also discuss some of the species she collected at Haile Farm Preserve for Rhode Island Wild Plant Society’s ReSeeding Rhode Island initiative.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
