Welcome to the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program where our mission is to protect, restore, and preserve Narragansett Bay and its watershed.
The Narragansett Bay watershed is over 1 million acres in area and is home to almost 2 million residents from Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
We collaborate with organizations from both RI and MA who work to protect wildlife, ensure water is safe and clean, and promote community involvement.
