Coastal Land and Estuary Protection for RI

Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP)

The Rhode Island Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program CELCP—the sixth in the country—is a critical step in the protection of important coastal and estuarine areas that have significant conservation, recreation, ecological, historical, or aesthetic values, or that are threatened by conversion from their natural or recreational state of other uses. The CELCP gives priority to lands that are effectively managed and protected and that have significant ecological value.
