EWPA is an all volunteer organization. Come join us.
A Chance to Help Preserve Stillhouse Cove. Apply to be a Volunteer.
Stillhouse Cove, thanks to the Edgewood Waterfront Preservation Association (EWPA), leads Rhode Island as an example of smart shoreline adaptation and resilience. Stillhouse Cove is also a beautiful gathering spot in Pawtuxet Village, maintained by the EWPA with volunteer help.
We are looking for a few new volunteers to add to our ongoing volunteer base. We will also invite a limited number of volunteers to join the Board of Directors of the EWPA, a non-profit.
The EWPA works with Save the Bay on both cleanups and adaptation of the shoreline to rising sea levels. We coordinate with the Pawtuxet Village Association for work on Pawtuxet Park. As climate change continues to affect every community, the work of the EWPA takes on additional importance. We have a history of working with students at the K-12 and college levels and will continue doing so, in some cases as part of grant projects.
Being a volunteer with the EWPA is a way to not only help maintain Stillhouse Cove, but to get involved in environmental advocacy in Rhode Island.
We ask that you respond to a few questions in your application to become a volunteer. We are proud of the work that the EWPA has done over the decades and look for the good work to continue.
