Save The Bay is pleased to announce Corvias as a primary 2019 Exploration Center and Aquarium sponsor, underwriting the cost of admission for Save The Bay family members for the year. Annually, Save The Bay welcomes more than 25,000 visitors to the interactive, hands-on marine science center that not only provides thousands of schoolchildren with K-12 programming all year long, but connects visitors of all ages with Narragansett Bay, with its one-of-a-kind, sustainable collection of more than 40 local species.
“Save The Bay has been a critical force in protecting Narragansett Bay,” said Corvias Founder John Picerne. “The work they do supporting the resiliency of Narragansett Bay aligns with our Giving Back and upstream environmental cleaning mission. We enthusiastically support the educational goals of the Exploration Center and Aquarium.”
“Our members are the lifeblood of Save The Bay,” said Save The Bay Executive Director Jonathan Stone. “We are so grateful to Corvias for their commitment to community and education, and for making it possible to thank our family members with free admission to the Exploration Center and Aquarium.”
