Save the Bay was launched to make sure all the water on Narragansett Bay stays clean!
In order to help keep this bay clean, we must recycle.
Since we know that recycling REDUCES our waste, this will help to save the bay.
At First Beach, in our hometown of Newport, Save the Bay has created the Exploration Center.
This center was designed to get children to understand the importance of fresh water fish and fisherman
How does Save the Bay help?
This effort helps to keep fresh fish alive
They make sure that no trash surrounds the area of the water.
It keeps the water clean for fishers, swimmers, and boaters to enjoy the beautiful water!
They make sure that landfills are not close to the bay, threatening the body of water.
