Plans for a Natural Sculpture Garden Grow at Green Hill

At the corner of Green Hill Beach Road and Matunuck Schoolhouse Road is a 22 acre parcel of land that is outstanding for its lush beauty—nurtured by a cold-water brook as it flows down from Factory Pond to Green Hill Pond and the ocean. Much of the eastern part of the property is a shrub swamp, but along the western side are approximately 3 acres of level upland with well-spaced trees and shade-tolerant grasses remaining from former meadowland. Neighbors and friends of the property often walk on the deer trails and imagine a place where the natural beauty can blend with nature inspired art. Troy West, a local artist, Green Hill resident and SKLT member is an enthusiastic supporter of the idea, and has gathered a group of artists who would contribute to a sculpture trail that would wind along the west side of the property. SKLT would like volunteers to advance this project through the planning and development process, including site clearing. Please contact Clark Collins at 783-4999 or to help.
