There are many interpretive panels along the trails and at the viewing platforms, offering visitors an “ah-ha” moment as they learn about what they are seeing. These panels also offer younger visitors an opportunity to practice their reading skills in front of their adult hiking partners. There are also knowledgeable volunteers, and some research materials at the contact station to answer those questions that aren’t explained by the interpretive panels.
Also, please visit the new approved URI Master Gardener Site next to the Trustom Pond Contact Station. Here you will learn about how to plant native plants, and see and hear the buzz of native pollinators and other wildlife that use the plants for food and shelter.
