This federal wildlife refuge/onetime farm offers up images pastoral, wooded, and coastal. Open fields, salt and freshwater ponds, vegetated islands, marshy and thickety shores, and quiet, low-canopy woods shape its mosaic. The big blue centerpiece is 160-acre Trustom Pond, the only undeveloped coastal salt pond in Rhode Island. A host of birds populate and visit the property. This is one for slow touring, binoculars, and breathing deep the tranquility.
