USBank-Newport Donates to Aquarium Nature Playspace


Thank you to USBank-Newport for the generous donation toward the Oregon Coast Aquarium Children’s Nature Playspace. The donation will support the expansion and renovation of the Aquarium’s playground into a sustainable forestry and timber-themed nature playspace.

“I have lived in Newport for 30 years, and the Aquarium was a go-to when my kids were little – it was fun even in the rain,” said Yeager. “Newport takes great pride in and supports the Aquarium. It brought a lot of jobs to this community. USBank is excited to be part of [the Aquarium’s] big campaign!”

The request to fund the Aquarium’s children’s nature play area fits well with US Bank’s Community Possible grants, with “Play” as one of their central focuses. Thank you Tina and USBank Newport for your support!
