We’ll be exploring a section of the Davis Farm that has seen very little change since the 1600’s. The event will start on Stonington Land Trust’s Osbrook Preserve, which abuts the Davis Farm. Here, we’ll view a significant Native American site, shared by both properties. After that, we’ll follow the trail, which will lead us onto the Davis Farm.  Then, as we wind our way down to the Cove, on the Pawcatuck River, Nick will continue to teach us about the rich history of these treasured properties. 


Our round-trip exploration will be on flat terrain and will take about 1 ¼ hours. There is no fee.
