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!
