Oceans are Outstanding

Good Morning Watershed Explorers,

If you have never had a chance to explore Rhode Island's coastline, fall is the perfect time. There are no fees for parking and the beaches are usually quiet. There are many creatures to observe including birds, fish, crustaceans, and mammals.

The local watershed areas that we have been testing, the Woonasquatucket, the Ten Mile, the Blackstone, and the Pawtuxet all connect to Narragansett Bay and eventually the Atlantic Ocean. Everything that we do in our watersheds locally can have an impact on larger watershed areas. Getting the chance to see the ocean in person can help you to understand how important it is to ensure that our watershed areas stay healthy.

While exploring the beach, collect a few rocks and shells. When you get home, use some paint or permanent markers to create some art. Here are a few shells that my older daughter created from a beach walk we took earlier this week. These are great keepsakes!

Happy Exploring,

Mrs. Morissette
