History of the Friends Tour

Newport Bay Conservancy traces its heritage back to 1967 when a group of citizens, including Frank and Frances Robinson, founded the Friends of Newport Bay to call attention to the ecological importance of the Bay and to enlist broad support for the retention and protection of the Bay in its relatively natural state. This group was at the forefront of environmental education, conducting monthly nature tours at the Bay starting in late 1968. We continue this tradition to this day, holding these tours monthly on the second Saturday from October to March!
