Join R.I. Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) and Rhode Island Sea Grant for a series of free webinars this summer on issues related to shoreline public access in Rhode Island.

The first webinar, Shoreline Access 101: What You Need to Know, features CRMC Executive Director Jeff Willis, who will explain the agency’s role in identifying and designating CRMC Rights-of-Way to the shore, best uses of shoreline access points, and current efforts by CRMC to improve shoreline access in the state.

What: Shoreline Access 101: What You Need to Know
When: June 1, 5-6 p.m.
Where: Zoom

Once registered, you will be able to submit your questions about public shoreline access in advance. There will also be a Q&A at the end of the webinar.

“One of the CRMC’s main charges and ongoing efforts is to designate rights-of-way to the shore, but last year especially highlighted the need for more and improved shoreline public access in Rhode Island,” says Willis. “People were trying to get outside and away from crowds, and faced some challenges. It illustrated to the CRMC that our agency must work to designate more points of access all over the state. We look forward to reaching our goal of one right-of-way per every mile of coastline, and continuing to work with our state, local, private and nonprofit partners to enhance existing access points.”
