Inspiring the next generation of Bay stewards
Since the 1980s, Save The Bay’s education program, Explore The Bay, has been connecting students, teachers and families to Rhode Island’s largest natural resource: Narragansett Bay. Our skilled team of educators bring the concepts introduced in the classroom to life with a hands-on, experiential approach to learning. We address a wide range of environmental and marine science topics and can customize any of our programs to fit today’s curriculum needs. All programs are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards, GEMS net kits, and Common Core.
Explore The Bay offers educational programming at our two educational facilities, in Providence and Newport, as well as “in the field,” whether that be on the water, along the coast, or in your local river, marsh or pond. We can also bring our programs to you in your classroom and school. All programs are designed to be a vehicle to help teachers and students achieve state science standards.
NEW FOR 2020: Save The Bay now offers virtual programs for both classroom and individual settings! Each virtual program is intended to be 45 minutes long, and can be presented virtually and in outdoor settings. Download the brochure to learn more!
