Save the Bay
Save the Bay started in 1970 to combat the raw sewage and industrial toxins that littered Narragansett Bay. Since that time, Save the Bay’s staff and volunteers have steadfastly revived the bay and its surrounding ecology by using a sustainable-ecosystem approach. The heart of their operation is the 15,000 square-foot Save the Bay Center. Its storm-water management system contains a vegetated roof, a coastal-buffer zone, swales, and basins that can absorb and filter 164,826 gallons of rain water. Made from recycled steel and metal, the center’s interior hosts an array of educational programs for adults and kids. The center also features an aquarium, camps, and marine-life tours aboard its 45-foot U.S. Coast Guard-certified vessel Alletta Morris or its 27-foot vessel Swift.
Save The Bay
Save The Bay has held to its mission since its founding in 1970: to protect, restore, and improve the Narragansett Bay region and its coastal waters through environmental action and stewardship. Save The Bay also defends the right of the public to use the Bay, encouraging visitors to act as responsible stewards of the Bay's bounty for future generations.
Today, Save The Bay's staff and volunteers continue their work from their Bay Center that serves as the heart of operations.
