Grant Will Support Westport River Center

EastBayRI.com: BayCoast Bank has presented the Westport River Watershed Alliance (WRWA) with a $25,000 grant in support of the River Center project. This grant is the first toward the bank’s 3-year pledge of $75,000.

“This gift from BayCoast will be publicly recognized on the River Center’s Outdoor Rear Deck where their name and logo will be visible. This is a lovely spot with an iconic view of the head of the river,” said WRWA Executive Director Deborah Weaver.

WRWA purchased the old Head Garage at the Head of Westport landing in 2014, and will soon begin renovations to transform the structure into their new headquarters and educational resource center.
