The Aquidneck Land Trust is pleased to announce its 2012 Conservation Speaker Series. The purpose of this program is to bring important conservation speakers to each of Aquidneck Island's three communities over the course of a year so as to deepen the dialogue on our Island about conservation.
On November 8, Robert A. Carrellas, M.D. presents "Nature as Nurturer: Protecting Land to Protect Our Health" at Sweetberry Farm.
If you are really concerned about your health, there is something far more important and basic to it than a new gym membership, super food smoothies, running shoes and lycra tights: a healthy environment. A healthy mind, body and spirit require clean air, clean water, fresh foods, natural beauty, outdoor exercise and communing with nature. Land protection helps secure all of these so that we can live a healthier existence. Doctor Robert A. Carrellas, respected local physician and Aquidneck Land Trust Trustee, will help participants understand nature as nurturer and various medical studies and initiatives that illustrate how protecting land helps protect our health. This free presentation is made possible through a collaboration between the Aquidneck Land Trust, Robert A. Carrellas, M.D. and Sweet Berry Farm.
RSVP to Courtney Huth at email@example.com or 401-849-2799 ext. 19 as space is limited. Refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
