Blackstone River Celebration

July 26, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

State, local officials and environmental groups invite the public to join in a celebration of a cleaner Blackstone River. Metacomet Land Trust will offer guided trail walks within the park, off County Street. Public is asked to park on Carrington Street.

The celebration will be a chance to look back at the accomplishments of the Campaign for a Fishable Swimmable Blackstone, and to look forward to our continued partnerships with communities, government agencies and the National Park Service to clean up and restore the Blackstone River. Rhode Island Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse will offer their remarks, as will Representatives David Cicilline from Rhode Island and Jim McGovern from Massachusetts. We will also be joined by officials from the National Park Service and from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

This will be a family friendly event with educational displays and tables, music, kids crafts, fish education, ranger tours of the park trails, and food trucks.

WHEN: Sunday, July 26th, 2015 12:00 – 3:00pm. Official speaking program will begin at 1:00pm.
