Hello, my name is Sarah Appleton and I am excited to be a Senior Marine Educator at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay. I came to Save the Harbor because of my love of Boston, the harbor and the little known, but amazing, Boston Harbor islands.
I am originally from Connecticut but, after the past 5 years roaming the streets of this wonderful city, I would consider myself a pretty good Bostonian. Although I grew up in Yankee territory, I have been a Red Sox fan since I was old enough to understand. GO SOX! I am a recent graduate from Boston University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. With my environmental policy minor and my sense of adventure for my new home, I have been able to learn a lot about Boston and the harbor that it shares with the sea.
Aside from Stanley Cup winning hockey teams and the Green Monsta, Boston has so much to offer and I feel it is my duty as a Bostonian to show the people how truly amazing it is. The Boston harbor is a truly remarkable place that we as Bostonians should cherish and enjoy.
This summer I am geared up and ready to explore the exciting marine ecosystems we have to offer from North to South Shore and make this summer one of the best with my fellow harbor explorers. I can't wait to get my feet wet, literally, and see whats under the next rock or beyond the next tide!
