What Happening in Little Rhody: June 2016

Save The Bay’s Exploration Center and Aquarium

Save The Bay’s Exploration Center and Aquarium is flying into the month of June and turning the spotlight to our feathered friends, Birds of the Bay. Visitors to the Aquarium in June will learn about the local birds that frequent the blue waters of Narragansett Bay. Children and adults alike engage in hands-on crafts along with a story hour, scavenger hunt and even the possibility of winning prizes. And, with Memorial Day weekend behind us, the Exploration Center and Aquarium on Easton’s Beach in Newport is now open daily, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

More than 200 bird species from all over the world flock to Rhode Island’s own Narragansett Bay annually. Birds such as the Great Egret, Osprey and the Piping Plover frequent the shoreline and even feed on the several native fish and invertebrate species that are housed inside the Save The Bay Exploration Center and Aquarium. Visitors can build their very own bird out of recycled materials, embark on a search for bird posters around the aquarium for prize stickers, tattoos and more. Guests can enjoy a reading of the children’s book, “Where Did All the Water Go?” by prize-winning author Carolyn Stearn.

The Exploration Center and Aquarium is located in the Easton’s Beach Rotunda at 175 Memorial Blvd. in Newport, R.I. The center is now open daily for the summer season, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. General admission is $8, and discounts are offered to military and senior citizens. Save The Bay Family Members can enjoy FREE admission for 2 adults and up to 4 children.
