Gooseneck Cove
Narragansett Bay

Gooseneck Cove is a pretty spot in Newport, RI.  It has been recently restored by Rhode Island's Save the Bay organization.  They took steps to increase the flow of salt water from nearby Fisherman's Cove in order to reduce the phragmites grass infestation that was choking the cove.  Now native eelgrass and the species that depend on it have begun to return.  Find out more at www.savebay.org.

More About Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation.  Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
