—->  Check back in the spring for info about Field Days 2018
    

A full day of training for professionals working in soils, erosion control, water quality, public works, engineering, roads, planning and consulting.  

A terrific learning opportunity as well; students attended for free, courtesy of the RI Nursery & Landscape Association. 

Presented in conjunction with Team E.J. Prescott and partners RI Department of Environmental Management, RI Nursery & Landscape Association, Rhode Island State Conservation Committee and IECA Northeast Chapter.

These Field Days are a collaborative effort between the private and public sectors to share information and promote a better understanding of the latest tools available to protect soil and water resources.  An array of options, both for controlling sediment and for designing & installing more effective long-term erosion control solutions, were on full display at the eight field stations spread out at URI’s East Farm.  Our goal was to provide information that was immediately useful to all who attended.



The Southern New England Chapter’s expenses in delivering the
E&SC Field Days were covered by SWAMP THINGS sponsorship from
