Geocache Description:

Sprague Farm - Part of the Glocester Land Trust
Hunting is permitted in the area during the fall. Wear your orange. It's a quick walk from the parking area.

"Sprague Farm abuts both Burton Woodland and Robert Huckins Woodland. It includes within its nearly 250 acres a variety of habitats for both plants and animals, including the Blackthroated Blue Warbler, long thought to be extinct in Rhode Island. Many of the trees have reached full maturity; among these is an impressive stand of Striped Maple. A pristine glacial fen and other wetland support many flowering plants which bloom in succession from early spring through fall. A grove of Atlantic White Cedar occupies a permanent swamp in the north-central region of the site.

Approximately 200 years of agricultural activity has left several open fields which help to diversify the habitat, as well as a clearly defined set of trails. At three different locations, these trails cross permanent streams via beautifully constructed stone bridges. The immense capstones of these structures are testament to the skill and ambition of the early settlers."

The cache was started with several Geocoins and a TB that I've gathered recently. There isn't much else in the cache for the kids at startup, so please bring a few trade items if you plan on taking any trackables. Thanks and enjoy!

CONGRATULATIONS to "Meesh7777" for FTF!!!
