The Uncommon Guide to Common Life of Narragansett Bay serves as a bridge between the people who use and enjoy Narragansett Bay and some of the common fish, invertebrates, plants, water birds and marine mammals that share our Bay. Each plant or creature has its own entry with beautifully drawn line art of the organism and a text description. The Uncommon Guide is an educational tool for both children and adults to use for learning about the Bay.

Since 1970, Save The Bay has been working to protect and restore Narragansett Bay and its watershed, located in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
A simple idea is at the heart of Save The Bay's stewardship, advocacy and education programs. The health and future of Narragansett Bay depends on our attitudes and actions - our use and enjoyment of the Bay depends on how carefully we protect and preserve it. We hope this book will help people to respect and recognize the fragile complexity of Narragansett Bay.Review:

For those of us who love our shoreline, The Uncommon Guide to Common Life of Narragansett Bay provides black-and-white sketches and concise descriptions of the plants and creatures we're apt to encounter." -- Gerry Goldstein, Providence Journal, January 4, 2000
