Save the Bay (Organization) | State Archives Catalog

Name: Save the Bay (Organization)


Historical Note:

<p class="_largetext"> Save The Bay was founded in 1970 on the community’s desire to protect our most precious resource - Narragansett Bay. To do that, Save The Bay has focused on the development of a committed constituency for the Bay. Children and adults throughout this region have learned the tremendous value the Bay brings to our economy, our environment, and our quality of life.

In defense of Narragansett Bay and its watershed, Save The Bay has watched over the activities and programs of the government and the citizenry that degrade the environmental quality of the Bay, basin, and watershed. We provides educational opportunities for children and adults to explore the Bay, fostering a understanding and a sense of personal responsibility for the resource.

Our history is one of accomplishment for the Bay. Once choked by raw sewage and dying a slow death from industrial toxins, the Bay is now making a strong comeback. There is still room for improvement, but more people than ever before are able to swim, fish, sail, and enjoy the waters of Narragansett Bay. What follows is a timeline reflecting Save The Bay’s history and charting important milestones we have achieved toward protecting Narragansett Bay.
