2019 ECRI Annual Meeting ~ June 3rd

Slatersville Congregational Church, 25 Green Street, Slatersville, RI 02876

Monday, June 3rd, 2019  3:00 – 8:00pm

The theme for the Annual Meeting of both ECRI and it's sister organization, the 501(c)(3) Environmental Council of Rhode Island's Education Fund is "Renewable Energy Siting". We will conduct our end-of-the-year business while exploring how best to site solar arrays for electricity generation in Rhode Island, a topic of great discussion at the State House and in many communities.

The event begins with a guided bus tour scheduled to begin promptly at 3:30pm. We plan to visit solar arrays in North Smithfield followed by a short visit to the Slatersville Reservoir. Along the way, we will explore the ecological costs of powering an economy and how these costs, including the loss of forests, have played out in Rhode Island's past.

Our tour guide will be:

  • Tom Kravitz, North Smithfield Town Planner

At 5:30pm, a local caterer will provide dinner, including vegan and vegetarian options.
Dinner and after-dinner events will be held in the Church hall, which is attached to the main Church building.

The dinner (including the afternoon bus tour) is $50.00, payable at the door.
