MUSIC FOR CHANGE

For the Island, From the Island: A Holiday Musical Collaboration by Various Artists

This album was recorded over the last two years and features the work of many Block Island musicians and artists. It features 10 songs, a mixture of cover and original holiday-inspired songs, and was recorded almost entirely on-island.  All proceeds from sales of this record will go towards the annual ConserFest Block Island School scholarship.  Click here to get your copy!

HAPPY DUNES PROJECT :)

#HAPPYDUNES

As an island on the Atlantic coast, Block Island is subjected to a plethora of storms and weather patterns (in addition to a significant seasonal tourist population), which takes a heavy toll on the island's already delicate ecosystem.  The dunes are one of the only lines of defense that help limit this impact and protect the island's shores and interior. Any and all replanting of habitat on Block Island helps to combat erosion. That’s why ConserFest raises funds at every festival to contribute to habitat preservation and restoration on Block Island.

JOIN OUR HAPPY DUNES CHALLENGE: We started the 10-for-1o challenge campaign in 2017, in honor of our 10th anniversary.  After the success of raising enough money to support the purchase of 10,000 new beach grass plants, we have decided to keep a good thing going.  Please click below to learn more and to join us in our effort to support shore restoration on Block Island and beyond!

BLOCK THE BAG

#BLOCKTHEBAG

Plastic is something that all of us use in one way or another and the plastic bag is one of the biggest culprits for environmental pollution.  Simultaneously, it is an opportunity for us to take a stand regardless of who we are or where we live.

RE-Think THE STRAW

#RETHINKTHESTRAW

Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day in the United States. In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for minimal convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution. 

In an effort to build awareness and action around this important issue, ConserFest offers reusable straw options at the event merch booths. Don’t forget to come and get yours!
