**The Town of West Greenwich is looking for a few residents to serve on the Conservation Commission.**
If you are interested, please submit a letter of interest to the Town Administrator for consideration by the Town Council.

 **Our 2015 Earth Day clean up event was a great success.  We had over 160 volunteers who removed 28.32 tons of tires and debris from the woodlands of West Greenwich and the Big River area.  Five 30 yard dumpsters were filled to overflowing.
Here is a great video of the entire clean up. This film was put together by Peter Gengler of the NEMBA.**
