Welcome to the
Rhode Island Resource Conservation
and Development Area Council Web Site

Serving Rhode Island's Economic, Social and Environmental Needs


We are pleased to be offering another opportunity for up to twenty-five woodland
owners to become RI Coverts Project Cooperators. We are now seeking applicants
to participate in the 7th Annual Coverts Training Workshop.

The RI Coverts Project is a program designed to promote sound forest management
practices that can make wildlife healthier, more diverse and abundant.
Now in its 7th year, the project has trained 100 landowners from across the state
through its two and one-half day workshop that focuses on forest ecology
and stewardship, wildlife management and land conservation.

"Take the training - you will never think about wildlife the same again!"
