RI Green Infrastructure Coalition

The Green Infrastructure Coalition (GIC) includes not-for-profit organizations, architects, designers, builders, city planners and state and local policymakers as partners, who work together to promote nature based solutions for cleaning runoff pollution. Nature based solutions create pathways for rainwater, melting snow, and other run-off to avoid pavement and infiltrate into the earth.

The GIC leadership represents a wide range of Rhode Island environmental organizations, including Jed Thorpe of Clean Water Action, Topher Hamblett of Save the Bay, Angela Tuoni of The Nature Conservancy, Sara Churgin of the Eastern RI Conservation District, and Phoenix Wheeler of the Audubon Society of Rhode Island. Their role is to guide the coalition, seek funding for projects and provide long term strategic objectives.

Our free membership is open to any Rhode Island organization, pubic, private or governmental, that supports our work and encourages the use of green infrastructure. You can see a list of our members here and you can become a member by contacting Sara Churgin at schurgin.ericd@gmail.com. To join our mailing list please email info@greeninfrastructureri.org.


The Green Infrastructure Coalition is committed to nature based solutions for cleaning runoff pollution.
