Secure Your Beach Clean Up Date with Save The Bay

Save The Bay (join here!) was founded on the community’s desire to protect our most precious resource – Narragansett Bay. Save The Bay’s history is one of accomplishment for the Bay. Once choked by raw sewage and dying a slow death from industrial toxins, the Bay is now making a comeback. There is still room for vast improvement, but more people than ever before are able to swim, fish, sail and enjoy the waters of Narragansett Bay. Save The Bay is committed to fostering a personal connection between people and Narragansett Bay; Children and adults have learned the tremendous value the Bay brings to our economy, our environment and our quality of life.

According to Save The Bay, they are working to PROTECT, RESTORE and EXPLORE Narragansett Bay and its watershed. Together, we:

  • Advocate for better Bay management on the local, state and federal levels.
  • Restore Bay habitat — salt marshes, eelgrass beds, fish runs and shorelines — to healthier and functioning conditions.
  • Encourage discovery and knowledge of the Bay through our educational programs.
  • Seek to create a community of Bay citizens who will preserve the Bay for generations to come.
