Suggest a New Restoration Project

If you would like to suggest a new restoration project for consideration by the Rhode Island Habitat Restoration Team, please fill in the following form. Include either a phone number or email address so that the team can contact you for further information about the proposed restoration.

All information will be reviewed by members of the Rhode Island Habitat Restoration Team prior to full posting on the R.I. Habitat Restoration Portal Web site. Members of the team will review proposed additions to the Project Inventory and respond to the project proponent within one month of receiving the potential project listing. The team will evaluate sites based upon the following criteria:

  1. Restoration projects should meet the R.I. Habitat Restoration Team's definition of restoration (i.e., the return of an ecosystem or habitat to a close approximation of its condition prior to disturbance). This can include actions to recreate physical, chemical, or biological characteristics that previously existed on a site.
  2. All fields in the "Suggest a New Project" form should be complete and accurate.

If you have problems using this form, please email the Website Administrator.
