RI Woodland Partnership

About Us
The Rhode Island Woodland Partnership (RIWP) advances the stewardship and long-term protection of Rhode Island’s woodlands to benefit the local economy, ecological values, and community enjoyment and health. The RIWP strives to increase the impact of forest conservation measures through education and information sharing.

Established in 2013, the RIWP is a collaboration among foresters, landowners, conservationists, and professionals who represent public agencies, small businesses, and non-profit organizations.  Partnership members share a common goal of advancing the stewardship and long-term protection of Rhode Island’s woodlands to benefit the local economy, ecological values, and community enjoyment and health. We welcome additional partners.

For more information about the RIWP, you can view our 2017-21 strategic plan.

RIWP meetings are open and typically, but not always, held on the third Thursday of the month from 1-3 PM. If you are interested in participating in a meeting, please contact Co-Coordinator Christopher Riely (criely@uri.edu) or Co-Coordinator Kate Sayles (ksayles@rilandtrusts.org).
