Experience the first burst of spring, just after the Spring Equinox, at Sowams Woods in Barrington.

Join us for a guided tour on Saturday, March 30, at 1 pm for a gentle two-mile walk along Echo Lake into the enchanting forest of Sowams Woods. 


All ages are welcome. The walk is about two miles round trip over mostly gentle terrain, with slight elevation changes and a few steps to climb. We’ll walk at a moderate pace while we share the history and ecology of the property.

The area around Sowams Woods is part of the ancestral homelands of the Pokanoket people. It is believed to be a sacred area set aside for women and for childbirth, a place of peace.

In 2006, the Barrington Land Conservation Trust acquired Sowams Woods with the support of local, state and federal funding and local philanthropists. The property encompasses 12 acres of forested land with a network of trails bordering Echo Lake. 

We’ll gather in the dirt parking lot at the juncture of North Lake and South Lake Roads in Barrington, RI.
