Hodge Preserve

A 25-acre parcel that connects to the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, the Hodge Property is the most recent large-scale conservation purchase on Block Island. Conserved through a partnership of the Block Island Land Trust, Block Island Conservancy, the Town of New Shoreham and The Nature Conservancy, it’s a great spot to view migratory songbirds, the state-endangered northern harrier, and the Block Island meadow vole. The meadow areas of the property have goldenrod, butter and eggs, and common aster; the maritime shrubland features bayberry, arrowwood and black cherry. Occasionally a location for organized stargazing through the Oceanview Foundation, the Preserve has a small parking lot along Corn Neck Road.
