Informing Our Community

A common theme that ripples through many of The Watch Hill Conservancy’s programs is informing our community. Young, old, residents, or visitors, we strive to make our community better aware of environmental, social, technical, political, and literary issues. We do this in many ways.

Lanphear LIVE! is our flagship summer lecture series and brings interesting speakers to Watch Hill to inform and educate the community. Topics range from technology, sport, history, science, and humanities. Started in the summer of 2018, it was an instant success and every presentation filled the Chaplin B. Barnes Reading Room at One Bay Street Center. Check the Lanphear LIVE! schedule to find out what’s coming up.

Napatree Investigators is our summer youth education program run by our team in the Napatree Point Conservation Area. Children ages 7-14 meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on summer mornings and are taught marine science, coastal conservation, and natural history. The instructors are experienced educators from the Pine Point School in Stonington and Pilgrim High School in Warwick. There is no charge but it is advisable to register early because classes rapidly fill. For more information see the program overview.
