Woonasquatucket River Greenway
Our annual meeting will focus on a success story. The paths, parks, and festivals that have been built along a river that flows from the densely populated, and formerly industrial areas, of North Providence, Johnston and Providence were hard to imagine when a small group of visionaries got together thirty years ago. Along the way, the group has planted natives, created an important habitat corridor and, equally important, involved the neighbors community in becoming stewards for the land.
Alicia Lehrer, Executive Director of the Woonasquatucket Watershed Council, will give us an overview of the organizations work with emphasis on rewilding projects.
