Press Room

Welcome to the Save The Bay Press Room.

Our Communications Team, along with all of Save The Bay’s environmental ecologists, educators, waterkeepers and advocates, works with the news media across all platforms to tell the stories of Narragansett Bay, the threats that endanger it, the efforts to protect it, the marine life that depend on it and the people who love it. We strive to be as responsive to media requests and timelines as possible within our areas of expertise, and we strive to connect members of the press with the most appropriate Save The Bay subject-area-expert.

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building.
