This weekend Owen and I visited Natural Lands Trust's Peacedale Preserve on our quest to visit the sixteen preserves in NLT's Field Guide (only 5 to go!). This is one of the few NLT preserves—and the only one in the Field Guide— that I had never visited before.
Appropriately enough I found it to be one of the quietest places I have ever been. We didn't manage to explore much of the preserve, spending most of our visit jumping in a mud puddle and picking at grass as only a two-year old can—and that was fine. A hiker returning from the trails reported the birding was good.
Here Owen walks under the iconic black locust near the parking area.
