    Love your lake but not always sure how to care for it? Wondering who you should talk to if you have a lake or watershed issue?
    Join us and lake association and watershed group members from around Rhode Island as Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management’s Office of Water Resources (RI DEM) staff and others update us about their activities, answer your questions, and address our issues.
    Hosted by Save The Lakes (STL), this lake association roundtable will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about how we all can protect and restore our favorite waterbodies. This also a great chance for you to share YOUR great ideas too!
    By sharing our local knowledge and talent, STL hopes this forum will answer the questions you’ve had about your lake! So join us for some fun, education and refreshments as we learn more about our lakes and how we can work together to keep them gleaming.

    A share this flier with your lake association, friends and neighbors and invite them to come on down to ask their questions!
