Annual Beach Slam out to protect Narragansett Bay

September 18, 2013 by  

The 3rd annual Save the Bay Beach Slam is taking place in Warwick this September, the purpose of which is to protect and improve the ecosystem of Narragansett Bay, thus ensuring that it will remain in its current state for our grandchildren to enjoy.

The Beach Slam will feature kayak, canoe, and paddleboard demonstrations from local vendors, land games, arts and crafts, live entertainment, food trucks, and live entertainment. There will be children’s activities, such as face painting and a climbing wall. In addition, there will be raffles and a Chill Zone in which people can cool off.

This is just one of the many public events hosted by Save the Bay throughout the year. The Misquamicut Beach fall cleanup, which took place in Westerly on September 14 and 15 of this year, helps to preserve that part of the bay and allows it to remain accessible. Meanwhile, Artists for the Bay which will be held in November at the Providence Journal Charitable Foundation Gallery, helps to raise funds for the organization.

It’s likely that the organizers of the Beach Slam will be working with Warwick printing companies to prepare. This might include the purchase of raffle tickets and flyers for advertising.

The Save the Bay Beach Slam will take place at Goddard Memorial State Park on September 22 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Admission is free. To learn more about this event and others, visit the Save the Bay website.
