Pasquiset Pond Preserve
Owned by the Nature Conservancy since 2000, this 200 acre property was acquired with help from The Champlin Foundations, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Town of Charlestown, and many private donors.
The wetlands support the rare ringed boghaunter dragonfly and an Atlantic white cedar swamp. A parking area on Old Coach Road provides access to a short loop trail that leads through an impressive stand of mature white pines, while further south the Narragansett Trail runs through the property passing by numerous wetlands, mountain laurel, and a field.
Located across Old Coach Road from South Farm Preserve. These two preserves provide a nearly 300 acre complex for conservation, wildlife, and passive recreation.
