While much of the shoreline in the Sowams Heritage Area has been privately acquired and built upon, several parcels in the Town of Warren have been preserved essentially as they were 400 years ago by the Warren Conservation Land Trust.
Jacobs Point in South Warren runs between the East Bay Bicycle Path and Narragansett Bay and reveals a natural salt marsh environment reserved for the wildlife that inhabits the area.
The Warren Land Conservation Trust has installed platforms for osprey as well as nesting bottles for purple martins who have returned to the area.
