Walking Tour: Westerly Shoreline Access
Note: In the event of rain or inclement weather, this event will be postponed to September 28, and participants will be notified.
Join us on Wednesday, September 21, at 5 p.m. for a free walking tour of a few of Westerly’s shoreline access sites. RI State Representative Terri Cortvriend, Casey Tremper of Clean Ocean Access, Leah Feldman of the Coastal Resources Management Council, and Janet Freedman of the URI Coastal Institute will talk about shoreline access issues, including proposed legislation regarding lateral access that would make the debris line the indicator for where the public is allowed to traverse the beach.
This short walking tour will take place along Atlantic Avenue in Westerly. 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, Clean Ocean Access, and Rhode Island Sea Grant.
