Stewardship News & Opportunities
In 2015 RI DEM Forest Environment, in partnership with NBNERR and the PI Volunteer Fire Department, was awarded the State and Private Forestry FY2015 Northeastern Area Wildfire Risk Reduction Competitive Project grant. In addition to prescribed fire applications and training opportunities, this grant allows for the development of the state’s first Community Wildfire Protection Plan and FIREWISE community education components.
There are on-going NBNERR stewardship projects, information, and activities that may be of particular interest to the local community. These may involve resource management & investigations, the development of community planning documents, or volunteer programs.
