Chepiwanoxet Point

WARWICK, RI – Mayor Joseph J. Solomon announced today that the Warwick Wildlife and Conservation Commission will be hosting a unique natural location tours at Chepiwanoxet Point on June 16th from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (Rain date of June 23rd).  The tour will begin in the parking lot located at the end of Alger Avenue.

Attendees are invited to come and learn about the rich ecology and history of Chepiwanoxet Point and what makes this site so unique.

Anne Holst, chair of the Warwick Wildlife and Conservation Commission, spearheaded the project after last year’s successful presentations of unique areas listed in the Rhode Island Wildlife Action Plan.  The Warwick Wildlife and Conservation Commission is constantly striving to assist the Planning Department and the City to sustain a balance between residential and commercial development while maintaining the integrity of the City’s wildlife and other natural resources.  This is an opportunity for the Commission to educate and engage residents and neighbors on the local ecological environment and natural resources housed within the City.

“From our numerous parks and protected open spaces, to our beaches, rivers, and ponds, to our varied wildlife habitat, Warwick’s natural resources are an integral part of what makes our city special, and whose importance cannot be overstated,” said Solomon. “One of the best ways to make sure that these resources are protected is to make sure residents are made to feel that they are stewards of our environment. I thank the Commission for their efforts to engage them through community programs like the natural location tours, and encourage our citizens to take part in this unique event.”

The tour is free and open to the public.
