August 9: Walk and Learn about Bristol RI Public Shoreline Access

people enjoying shoreline access

What: Bristol Shoreline Access Walking Tour
When: August 9, 5:30-7 p.m.
Where: Bristol, Rhode Island

Join us on a walking tour of some of Bristol's public shoreline access sites! Bristol Harbor Master Greg Marsili, Leah Feldman of the CRMC, and Janet Freedman of the URI Coastal Institute will talk about how you can find these sites, how you might use them, and what to do if you think a site is public but looks private. Many public shoreline rights-of-way are also storm drain areas - we'll look at how Bristol has renovated stormwater filtration at one of these sites using green infrastructure for improved water quality.

This event is free but registration is required.

This short walking tour will be under a mile total and will include stops at four public access rights-of-way in Bristol that are located along the East Bay Bike Path. Directions to the site and instructions for meeting the group will be emailed to you after you register.

This event is sponsored by the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council, the Coastal Institute at URI, and Rhode Island Sea Grant.
