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 River Watershed Council, will give us an overview of the organizations work with emphasis on rewilding projects.
Alicia Lehrer joined the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC) as Executive Director in March 2008. She holds a BA in Environmental Science from Columbia University and an MS in Natural Resources Science from the University of Rhode Island. Alicia also serves on the RI Paths to Progress committee, working to establish a network of active transit (biking/walking) paths across RI.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
