Support Us

We believe that our town is defined by its natural beauty, its character rooted in a centuries-old connection to working lands and cherished vistas. If this natural beauty is lost, it can never be regained.  Little Compton’s natural resources of forest, wetland, fresh water, coast, meadow and open land are vulnerable. Protecting them could be our greatest gift to future generations, a legacy that will outlast us all.  Sakonnet Preservation is proud of its success since its founding in 1972. We are here because of the generosity of our members!

Sakonnet Preservation is supported entirely by membership donations, our annual appeal, and grant funds. If you share our vision of protecting Little Compton’s natural resources and rural character for the generations that will follow us, please join us, renew your membership, or contribute an additional gift!
