This week “Discover Something New about Sand Hill Cove Photography…”:

Don Cameron, of Sand Hill Cove Photography, has an artist’s eye and the heart of an advocate for a way of life that is dependent on the sea. After an architectural career he settled in the Sand Hill Cove section of Narragansett where he continues to explore, observe, and photograph life in the nearby fishing village of Galilee and beyond. His photos invite people to bring the beauty and flavor of coastal and inland South County home with them.

And…“Discover Something New about Ninigret Oyster Farm…”:

For more than twenty years Rob Krause, of Ninigret Oyster Farm, has been shellfish farming, most of it on his own leases in Ninigret Pond. He has been developing his farming expertise to the point where oyster seed is started in a solar powered upweller, suspended from a rafter for 12 months. (next to Ninigret Landing Marina which he owns with two other oyster farmers). The baby oysters are then spread on the pond bottom for another 12 months before harvesting…They then find their way, after 2 years, to restaurants around the country AND to the Charlestown Land Trust Farmers’ Market every summer.

This coming Friday, August 9th Green Energy Consumers’ Alliance (formerly People’s Power and Light) will be on hand with valuable information on renewable energy options.  It’s reported that they’ll bring an ELECTRIC CAR for people to investigate.

We’ll welcome back URI’s Water Testing Team, always an important resource in our rural area with its many wells as the sole source of drinking water.

Our Music Man for the day will be Tom Burgess, someone we look forward to hearing every summer!

And this Friday evening, August 9th at 6:30, at the newly opened Patricia Sprague Forest Preserve in the Carolina section of town, the Charlestown Land Trust will host the kick off event for RI Land Trust Days.  6 land trust daysThis month long, annual celebration of open space and conserved land around the State of Rhode Island is sponsored by the RI Land Trust Council and highlights many outdoor treasures that are available to the public throughout the year.  Friday night’s event is free, open to the public, includes an hour long walk with refreshments served.
