Get Involved

Look beneath your feet. Can you see the water? Search deeper. Listen. It’s there – whether as a trickle, roar, hiss, or crash. It’s running through pipes, hidden caves, water parks, and creeks. Negotiating it’s flow with highways, hurricane barriers, infill, and great piles of garbage. Surrounding us as puddles, ponds, lakes, and rivers that all feed into the bay.

If you’re in Providence, it’s likely that 250 years ago you would find yourself knee-deep in a swamp or submerged underneath the Great Salt Cove. Travel back even further, say 50,000 years, and you’d be under 4,000 feet of ice.

We’re a collective of curious people tracing the pathways of Providence’s water and amplifying the stories it tells.

Look beneath your feet. There’s water. Can you see it? Look deeper. Listen. It’s there – whether as a trickle, a roar, a hiss, or a crash. Imagine glaciers towering over you 50,000 years ago, or the muddy swamps and brackish cove that would have submerged you as that frozen water melted and pooled. Water is all around us – running through pipes, hidden caves, water parks, and creeks; surrounding us as puddles, ponds, lakes, and rivers that all flow into the bay. It finds its way despite highways, hurricane barriers, infill, pollutants, and garbage. Waterways are the lifeforce of this land.

Despite water being so central to our ecosystem and our lives, many of us take it for granted and treat it as a product to be consumed, enjoyed, or even dumped in. It’s time for change. Here are some ways you can be involved and advocate on behalf of our waterways:

As a coastal city, Providence must plan NOW for what climate change will bring. Learn about and participate in the Providence Resilience Partnership.
