As the red tail flies: the link between the Bay and the watershed forest by Kate McPherson, Narragansett Bay Riverkeeper Snow falls gently around the Narragansett Bay watershed; and the branches of the black oak, red maple and shagbark hickory are all bare.

Thursday, February 21, 2019

Rowing The Seekonk There was a time, not long ago, when the water of the Blackstone River—once called “America’s hardest working river”—changed colors and drained into the Seekonk River, and thence into Narragansett Bay.

What’s Your Property Value Flood Risk?

Thursday, February 14, 2019

A recent study found that 2.5 million properties in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine lost $403.1 million in appreciation value because of increased tidal flooding caused by sea level rise.
