Comments
Comments: We are doing our part to comply with our governor's and nearby governors' restrictions, which of course are designed to limit the spread of the coronavirus. We are not supposed to leave the tiniest and fourth flattest state "except for food, gas, or work." So we've been making in-state field trips on weekends. As of now, and this could change at any time, all state parks and beaches are closed to cars and parking. But you can walk or bike in. The Audubon Society of Rhode Island properties have closed buildings and cancelled programs, but they are encouraging people to use their trails for recreation and exercise at no cost. Some town parks are open too. Our original plan for today was to go to Long Pond and Ell Pond Natural Area, but a quick web search let us know it is closed. So Parker Woodland (ASRI) was an easy second choice. People were doing a pretty good job of social distancing.
