Save The Bay receives $72,000 federal grant

Posted 9/23/13

PROVIDENCE – Save The Bay has received a federal grant of nearly $72,000 to support its environmental-education program, The Associated Press reported last week.

The Rhode Island group, which works to protect Narragansett Bay, says the money is through a program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration known as B-WET, or Bay Watershed Education and Training program.

The funding will support the professional development of as many as 20 fourth-grade teachers in Providence, including time on the water and in the lab.

More than 500 students in the state will take field trips to test water quality, examine plankton and trawl for animals on the Narragansett Bay floor, the AP said. They will also collect animal specimens and examine underwater animals.

Save The Bay’s award was one of nine given by the Northeast regional office of NOAA Fisheries, the AP said. •
