FOR BOATS, BIRDS, AND BBQ EVENT SATURDAY 5/17, 1 - 4 PM
Community Boating Center (CBC), the Audubon Society of Rhode Island, and Save The Bay (STB) have announced a FREE waterfront party featuring skippered sailboat rides, majestic birds of prey, STB boat tours, and BBQ on Saturday, May 17th from 1:00- 4:00 pm at the Community Boating Center in India Point Park in Providence, RI.
Highlights will include FREE sailboat rides, Audubon Birds of Prey presentations at 1:15, 2:15 and 3 pm, and Save The Bay education vessel tours.
John OFlaherty, Executive Director of CBC commented, Go sailing, see a live raptor demo, take a boat tour, and enjoy a burger on the Bay! Come enjoy the waterfront, and meet our Audubon partners (and their winged friends) and Save The Bay neighbors for a fun, family outdoor adventure.
The Audubon Society of Rhode Island (ASRI) is dedicated to education, land conservation and advocacy. A voice in statewide ecological issues, the Society actively fulfills its environmental stewardship through preservation and protection of Rhode Islands natural heritage.
Save The Bay protects, restores, and improves the ecological health of the Narragansett Bay region, including its watershed and adjacent coastal waters, through an ecosystem-based approach to environmental action; defends the right of the public to use and enjoy the Bay and its surrounding waters; and fosters an ethic of environmental stewardship among people who live in or visit the Narragansett Bay region.
Community Boating Center (CBC) is a non-profit, 501c3 recreational organization offering all members of the community an opportunity to sail and paddle. Located in India Point Park, CBC provides outreach, sailing lessons and affordable access to the Providence waterfront. Gifts of cash or property to CBC may be treated as charitable donations for Federal Tax purposes.
