30th Anniversary Swim
I sat down to write this message today and decided that "change" was going to be my theme. With so many changes in the world in the past few years, not always for the good, I wanted to focus on Narragansett Bay and how it is dealing with change. I started writing then I walked over and picked up an issue of Tides, Save the Bay's a biannual magazine with in-depth stories covering issues affecting the Narragansett Bay watershed. This issue of Tides is all about change. Jon Stone, Exectuive Director of Save The Bay, writes that change is the only constant in the Bay. These include the composition of fisheries, the decline of salt marshes and changing precipitation patterns on water pollution.
One thing that hasn't changed since it began in 1970 is Save The Bay's commitment to preserve the Bay and coastal waters of RI and to help adapt to the accelerating pace of change. My commitment to preserving the waters I swim in throughout the year has only grown over the years that I've lived in RI. I moved here 30 years ago and swam my first Bay swim in 1988.
This year marks my 31st consecutive Save the Bay swim. Please join me in celebrating this and Save The Bay's success in keeping Narragansett Bay clean, healthy and beautiful.
