Join Save The Bay for our Earth Day Birthday party: a FREE family-friendly, 50th anniversary kick-off event held at our Exploration Center & Aquarium on Easton’s Beach in Newport, R.I. on Saturday, April 27. Help us tackle a morning beach cleanup (10 a.m.-noon) or stop by later in the day (noon-4 p.m.) for games and activities, live music and performances, food and more!

Dear Friends, Supporters and Community Members, 

At this time, Save The Bay’s facilities in Providence, Newport and Westerly remain closed to the public in response to COVID-19.

In keeping with statewide COVID-19 health and safety recommendations, and out of an abundance of caution, Save The Bay is “pausing” all seal tours through February 2021. We hope to welcome you back aboard our education vessels soon!

Save The Bay is offering limited volunteer and internship opportunities with new policies and procedures for the health and safety of all involved.

Our staff remains dedicated to working on our mission to protect and improve Narragansett Bay from home. As always, we are accessible via email (listed on our website), or on FacebookInstagram or Twitter.
