PROVIDENCE, R.I. – July 14, 2020 – Save The Bay is pleased to announce that its 2020-2021 volunteer program will be supported by Bank of America.

By supporting the work of strong local partners like Save The Bay, we can protect an important natural resource that provides jobs, recreation and billions of dollars for the regional economy,” said Bill Hatfield, Market President for Bank of America in Rhode Island.

Dear Friends, Supporters and Community Members,

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 for the remainder of 2020. We hope to welcome you back aboard our education vessels in the new year.

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.
