Providence Water - Winter Walk in the Forrest
Due to the large amount of snow, we are postponing the Providence Water walk & tour originally scheduled for this Saturday until Sunday, March 22, from 9 AM - 12 PM.
Providence Water is offering a winter walk in the forest on the west side of the Horseshoe Dam near the village of North Scituate. A sugarbush has been established here to collect maple sap for making maple syrup. At this time of year the sap will be flowing, so we will get a full tour of the maple tapping operation. We'll share more information about what this area used to be like before the reservoir system was established and point out signs of historic settlement. We will then hike south along a woods road through a forest stand where a timber harvest was carried out several years ago. The walk will provide an opportunity to discuss the results of the harvest and management goals for this part of the property.
Reservations are required to join the field tour and can be made by registering online or by calling Forest Supervisor Christopher Riely at (401) 521-6300 x 7313. An email address or phone number for each participant group is required in case it is necessary to contact registrants with additional information regarding the event. Both adults and children are welcome, but no pets please. The length of the walk is approximately 2 miles over rolling terrain and participants should wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for being outdoors in winter weather.
The public watershed lands near the Scituate Reservoir are closed to unauthorized access for water quality protection and security reasons.
Humor and the Harp
A night of free music
Tuesday, March 3rd at 7pm
Held at the North Scituate Public Library
All are Welcome.
Mary King presents an evening of hilarity and heavenly music, designed to touch your heart, lighten your spirits and have you laughing out loud. She plays a variety of music on the harp, including Celtic, contemporary, classical and original pieces. She has played with "Celebrating Ireland in Story & Song" ( a Rhode island favorite) for 14 years and has received rave reviews for her harp playing at weddings and special events. Think Harpo Marx with dark hair and Irish eyes who loves to get the world laughing along with her.

High Risk Rural Road Improvements by the RI Department of Transportation
Many residents have asked about improvements that started recently on some Town Roads. Specifically, double yellow center lines have or will be painted on Trimtown Road, Bungy Road, Rocky Hill Road, the north segment of Gleaner Chapel Road, Westcott Road and Central Avenue. This work was designed and is being paid for by RIDOT; there is no Scituate tax money involved. The pavement markings also include white edge lines.
The project scope involves placing secondary stop signs at several (20) intersections; there will be no new stop sign locations. At 4 various locations, “curve warning” signs will be installed.
This RIDOT project was reviewed by the Town last year and we have agreed to maintain the improvements, once installed.
