ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

ROOTS OF CREATION

CONSERFEST 2017 welcomes Roots of Creations to the main stage for this summer's "music on a mission" celebration of conservation awareness and action.

"From addictive reggae pop songs to consciously charged roots rhythms and berzerk electronic improvisations, the grace and precision with which Roots of Creation execute their bass-heavy works is overwhelming. Their roots are tinged with rock, their rock brushed with electronica, and they’re as likely to dash off into a 10-minute guitar-led groove as they are to perform righteous vocal songs that resonate like the roots-rock classics of old.” — Homegrown Music Network

ConserFest's campaign to build scholarships for students at the Block Island School. The ConserFest Scholarship helps fund educational opportunities for applicants that foster a life-long love of learning, particularly through the lens of conservation and environmental science. 

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.

JOIN OUR 10-for-10 CHALLENGE: This year is ConserFest's 10th Anniversary and we are working to raise enough money to support the purchase of 10,000 new beach grass plants.

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.

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.
