Some of Rhode Island’s most ecologically important and vital habitats exist on Rhode Island’s South County Coast, including nine salt ponds and Little Narragansett Bay at the mouth of the Pawcatuck River at the Connecticut border. These ponds and Little Narragansett Bay are unique in their history and ecological diversity and play an integral part in the ecosystem that includes Narragansett Bay proper and its tributaries.

David Prescott serves as the South County Coastkeeper for Save The Bay’s Westerly office. As Coastkeeper, he provides a visible on-the-water presence and works in the community to protect, restore and promote stewardship of South County and the coastal ponds region stretching from Narragansett to the Connecticut border. An avid surfer and skier, he enjoys spending time with his family.
