Throughout the Rotary year, the Rotary Club of Metro Providence participates in various environmental activities, reflecting Rotary's seventh area of focus, Supporting the Environment. We participated in Zap the Blackstone's 50th anniversary cleanup for the Blackston River Watershed, tackling Gano Street in Providence. We removed litter in Providence's India Point Park, as part of the Ocean Recovery Community Alliance (ORCA) cleanup project. We collected hundreds of "nips" bottles as part of the Great Nip Pickup Challenge, an effort to collect as many littered nips as possible from around the state in 90 days. And, we picked up litter on Earth Day as part of Highlander Charter School's cleanup event in Providence. As part of Rotary, we are committed to strengthening the conservation and protection of natural resources, advancing ecological sustainability, and fostering harmony between communities and the environment.
