Bay-Friendly Living

Bay-Friendly Living

Why it's important

Even if you live miles away from Narragansett Bay, you play an important role in its health, because you live in its watershed. 

A watershed is an area of land where ground water, rain and melting snow flow into a body of water, such as a river, salt pond, estuary or ocean. The greater Narragansett Bay watershed extends as far north as Worcester, Massachusetts and flows southward to Rhode Island sound and southern coastal beaches.

Bay-friendly living is as easy as the simple actions you'll find in this guide. These are things you can do on your own –– and things we can do together as a community –– to make a positive impact on the health of our rivers and streams, coastal waters and Narragansett Bay. What's more, they can also save you time and money.
