Save a day for Save the Bay

One random day last year when I needed to get out of the house, I took the boys over the Newport Bridge to the Save the Bay Exploration Center.  I had seen it in my Entertainment Book so I figured, what the heck.  Located beachside on Easton Beach, at 175 Memorial Blvd, Newport RI, we discovered that the Save the Bay Exploration Center is a great place to take the kids to explore local ocean life.
They have 14 exhibits and about 140 species of Narragansett Bay creatures.  The kids of course loved the touch tanks where they were able to handle crabs and sea stars.
Though small, it is right on the beach.  Pack your suits and beachwear, so that after you learn about the Bay's natural inhabitants you can go search for them on the beach and in the waves.  
They are open daily 10-4 through Labor Day.  General Admission is $6, but kids under 4 are free.  They also have weekly themes and special activities that are included in the admission.  At the time we went, the boys made jellyfish out of plates and streamers.  But they also have story time and fish feedings depending on the time you go.
Go to my FB page to like and make a comment, and enter to win a family 4 pack to the Narragansett Save the Bay.  I am picking the winner old fashion way, writing it down and picking from a hat.  So enter by Wednesday August 3rd for your chance to win.  I will be picking the winner at 8 pm.  Please one entry per person ;)  OT Mommy Face Book Page
