Lake and Watershed Annual Forum Wednesday, May 26, 2021 * 6:30-8 pm Johnston Memorial Park – Dunn Building Pavilion 1583 Hartford Avenue * Johnston, RI * 02919
It’s been too long since we gathered to share our question and experiences with lake and watershed management. A great deal has happened with updated state regulations and policies, increased recreational use of our local waters in response to Covid-19, and so much more. Please join lake association and watershed group members from around the state for presentations from Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management’s Office of Water Resources (RI DEM) staff explaining changes in the freshwater wetlands regulations, answer your questions, address issues and update us about their activities. Learn more about the Resident Initiative, promoted by Save The Lakes to engage local and state action to benefit Rhode Island’s freshwaters. Come ready to share your point of view and learn more about how we all can save the lakes. Save the Lakes is proud to be hosting this outdoor meeting, which allows you to safely spend time with other waterfront neighbors sharing solutions to waterfront problems. Lakeside stewardship means learning how to care for your lake and the lands around it – and here is your chance to become a lake steward! Bring a folding chair and join us for some fun, education, and socially distant networking as we learn more about our lakes and how we can work together to keep them, and us, healthy.
