Earth Day Birthday

Save The Bay places the utmost importance on the health and safety of our partners, supporters and fellow community members. As we continue to follow state recommendations and guidelines for social gatherings, we will not be holding our Earth Day Birthday Party in 2021. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event!

Our Earth Day Birthday Party may be on hold, but the “Old School Art Contest” is on!

We are pleased to announce that we will once again hold our online “Old School Art Contest” this spring!

Working with the theme “My Place on the Bay,” the contest invites young artists in grades K-12 to take a break from their screens, pick up some colored pencils or markers, and create their own artistic interpretation of Narragansett Bay!

Winners will receive a copy of their artwork printed on canvas, a Save The Bay t-shirt, a plaque of recognition and more!

The Old School Art Contest is taking place now-May 31. Learn more here!
