Rhode Island has over 40 land trusts, a dozen watershed organizations and numerous conservation commissions. The Rhode Island Land and Water Partnership builds the capacity of these critically important grassroots organizations. Partnership programs foster learning and collaboration among conservation leaders throughout the state and region. We believe that by working together, we can individually and collectively be more efficient and more effective in protecting our state's land and water resources.
Programs of the RI Land and Water Partnership:
- Land and Water Conservation Summit –
The 14th annual Summit will be held on Saturday March 11, 2017 at the URI Memorial Union. You don’t want to miss it! The Summit is the best opportunity this year to network with land and water conservation peers and attend workshops to help your organization be more effective.
- Advertising, exhibit and sponsorship opportunities are available now; get in front of a highly targeted, difficult to reach audience. This is your best opportunity all year to network with Rhode Island's conservation leaders. For more information see the Summit Page. Opportunities for advertising end on January 13, 2017.
- Visit the Materials from Past Summits page to download presentations and related materials from past summits.
- ExploreRI.org is the go-to website for information on paddling routes, canoe and kayak put-in locations, and land trust trails in Rhode Island. The Land and Water Partnership is one of the partners who makes ExploreRI possible.
- On-line Library of Resource Materials – The Partnership, in collaboration with the RI Conservation Stewardship Collaborative, has created and maintains an extensive library of web-based "how to" information to support conservation, management, and stewardship.
