The Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is one of 29 National Estuarine Research Reserves located around the country. Established to provide long-term protection of coastal lands so they can serve as platforms for research, education and recreation.  The Reserve is supported and administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and managed by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.
