Rhode Island Parks & Recreation, a division of the RI Dept. of Environmental Management, invites artists of all ages to create artwork focused on the theme, “Carry In – Carry Out,” illustrating the practice of leaving no trace and bringing your trash home with you when you visit parks, beaches, and environmentally sensitive areas. Participants may bring their artwork to the Burlingame Family Festival at Burlingame State Campground in Charlestown on Sunday, Oct. 13, between 11 am and 5 pm, or you can create a drawing while at the event. Gift certificates from local attractions, restaurants, and businesses have been donated as prizes to the contest winners in four age categories: Age 8 and under; Ages 9 to 13; Ages 14 to 18; and Over 18. RI Parks & Recreation may feature submitted artwork on the RI Parks’ Facebook page and on Instagram.
