As of July 10, 2020, we are starting to offer both free community walks as well as hired nature walks for organizations and companies. We are limiting group sizes to 8 guests, practicing social distancing of 6+ feet, and requiring face coverings. We are following the same protocols as local nature organizations, adhering to state laws and guidelines, and will continue to adjust our approach based on new information.
Join us for a free
walk in Rhode Island
Unplug and explore natural spaces in Rhode Island with us. We offer a few walks a month, at various locations around the state. We’ll learn about the habitats, wildlife, and natural history of the places we visit. We’ll also discuss mindfulness and how nature walking can be a meditative and therapeutic act.
These walks are open to anyone and everyone. We ask that minors are accompanied by an adult. We’ll provide details, directions, and instructions after you register. These walks are a way for Tanager to make nature part of our practice, and share the secret beauty of the natural world with as many people as possible.
Our community nature walks are currently in hibernation. Check back in the spring, or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.Subscribe

"When a major session for our annual retreat fell through, we immediately called Tanager. We’d just heard about their nature walks and thought it would be the perfect fit. We weren’t disappointed. Greg coordinated the event flawlessly. The location was quintessential Rhode Island while showcasing a ton of natural wildlife. We were welcomed at the anointed spot, and the Tanager team quickly took charge of our meandering crew. Their guide style was wonderful — perfectly capable of introducing new species to those with less familiarity, but happy explaining more advanced content. The team had a stellar day, picked up a lot of new knowledge, and we all left inspired to spend more time outside. We’ll absolutely do another walk with Tanager."
