A Rhode Island group that works to protect Narragansett Bay has received a federal grant of nearly $72,000 to support its environmental education program.
Save The Bay says the money is through a program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration known as B-WET, or Bay Watershed Education and Training program.
The group said the money supports professional development for up to 20 fourth-grade teachers in Providence, including time on the water and in the lab.
Over 500 students will take field trips to test water quality, examine plankton and trawl for animals on the Narragansett Bay floor. They will also collect animal specimens and examine underwater animals.
Save The Bay's award was one of nine given by the northeast regional office of NOAA Fisheries.
