Saving Block Island - 04/17/12


In 2005, Peter Lord, a Providence Journal reporter who won numerous awards for his coverage of environmental issues,  wrote "Saving Block Island", a seven-part series on the efforts of Block Island Residents to preserve much of the island as open space.  The series was one of the The Journal's first extensive multimedia efforts and included a photo slide show narrated by Peter.

The Providence Journal has given us permission to link to this series.  Please note that the Journal plans to move this series to another page on its site in the near future.  When this occurs, the link to this series, also available on the About New Shoreham page of this site, may be unavilable for a short time.
