Presented in conjunction with primary organizer Team EJ Prescott and partners RI Department of Environmental ManagementRI Nursery & Landscape AssociationRI State Conservation Committee and IECA Northeast Chapter.


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

This is a terrific learning opportunity as well, so STUDENTS attend for FREE* courtesy of the RI Nursery & Landscape Association.

*registration required 

Sediment is the world’s #1 pollutant.  Soil moved by erosion can be harmful to our drinking water resources and our fish & wildlife habitat, and can impact our quality of life.  We all need to know our options, both for controlling sediment and for designing & installing more effective long term erosion control solutions.

This field day is a unique collaborative effort between the private and public sectors to share information and promote a better understanding of the latest tools available to all who are entrusted with protecting our precious soil and water resources.

The day will start with classroom presentations and then move outdoors for small group sessions in a hands-on demonstration setting.  Our goal is to provide information that is immediately useful to all who attend.  Credits will be awarded; see details, below.
