Kick Off Rally for Yes on 3

Rhode Islanders, join the cause this morning with YESon3RI and the Audobon Society of Rhode Island as they host a kickoff rally for Yes on 3.  Not aware of the November ballot decision?

The $47.3 million Green Economy and Clean Water bond on November’s ballot gives voters the opportunity to support a state-wide investment that builds on Rhode Island’s strengths: a healthy Narragansett Bay, safe drinking water for all, a robust network of bikeways and recreational facilities, revitalized industrial spaces, working farms, open spaces for generations to enjoy, and protection against flooding and storm events.

When:  Today, October 12th at 10 AM

Where: Waterplace Park Amphitheatre, Providence, RI

National ASLA reveals new logo!

“ASLA is implementing a rebrand that refreshes our logo, which dates to 1987; sets a new palette; employs new fonts and image logic; and suggests logo, color, and font treatments for chapters. The effort teams with the ASLA Center for Landscape Architecture to enhance the Society’s new directions.”
