10-12-19 Save The Bay - The 95.9 Company Break

October 15th, 2019

This time on The 95.9 Company Break we talk with Topher Hamblett, Director of Advocacy at Save The Bay. Save The Bay is an independent, member-supported, nonprofit organization. They got our start as a grassroots organization in 1970, when a small group of concerned citizens came together to fight an oil refinery proposed for the shores of Tiverton. Their work began the legacy as the eyes, ears and voice for Narragansett Bay. Today they carry out their mission through three areas of work: advocacy, education, and habitat restoration and adaptation. For more information call  401-272-3540 or visit www.savebay.org
