The University of Rhode Island Environmental Education Center is situated on 2,300 acres of forests, wetlands and old farmland–the W. Alton Jones Campus. Dedicated to environmental education, the Center has been offering quality day and residential programs for over 30 years. The facilities include a knotty pine dining lodge with field stone fireplaces, hardwood floors and five meeting rooms. The six cabins sleep 100 school-age children. The property includes ten miles of hiking trails, a 75-acre lake, a historical working farm, and a nature preserve with a swamp boardwalk all adjoining 40,000 acres of state forests. Operates September through June as an overnight and day field trip destination for school children, primarily in grades 4 to 8. During the summer there are three environmentally-focused camping programs: Farm and Ecology Day Camp for ages 5-11, overnight Earth Camp for ages 8-13, and Teen Expeditions for ages 12-17.
