Discovering Block Island: One of the Last Great Places

In honor of Earth Week – we’d thought we talk about why Block Island is such a special place. In fact, in 1991 The Nature Conservancy named Block Island one of the 12 “Last Great Places” in the Western Hemisphere! I couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’ve built a whole brand around the island’s natural beauty.

Block Island is a truly special place. It’s home to 40 rare or endangered species and nature preserves make up over 40% of the island. And don’t forget it offers 17 miles of beach and 28 miles of hiking trails.

To support this, soon after the Nature Conservancy’s amazing distinction, they set-up a permanent field office on Block Island. It’s one the special environments that The Nature Conservancy actively protects.

On the island they offer a host of educational programs, events, studies, and virtual and self-guided nature walking tours. You can find their calendar of events every month here.

Alongside the Nature Conservancy, many island partners, such as the Block Island Conservancy and the Block Island Maritime Institute, and community members are active conservationists.

The island should definitely be a bucket list place and a wonderful destination to truly experience nature at its best.
