The Sept. 8 BLCT public tour of Johannis Farm drew more than 30 visitors to the historic marsh, meadow, and woodland habitat.
“It’s probably one of the most important saltwater estuaries in the state,” said Pete McCalmont, who led two tours of the property.
Thirty-seven acres of the Johannis Farm was acquired by the BLCT in 1990. It is the site of Colonial-era brick factory and working farm. It is surrounded by several other protected lands, creating an open space of some 100 acres.
The event was part the Land Trust Days sponsored by the Rhode Island Land Trust Council.
