Two Views on Clean Water

Yesterday, while our Youth Environmental Education Program staff explored the Boston Harbor Islands,  I attended a press conference on clean water organized by Ben Hellerstein of Environment Massachusetts.

It was great to hear Curt Spaulding, Administrator for EPA's New England Region and Bob Zimmerman of the Charles River Watershed Association talk about the importance of protecting water and wetlands that are so important to water quality and public health.

As I spoke briefly (Really!) about the economic and recreational value of the investments we have made in clean water in Boston Harbor, I noticed our summer staff on the top deck of the ferry. If you look closely, you can see them waving in the background.
When I returned to my office on the Verandah at Constitution Marina, our staff photographer Joseph Prezioso sent me this nice photo he took from the boat.

In the 25 years I have been spokesman for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay two things have become increasingly clear. The first is the water and the second is the value of the investments we have made in restoring and protecting Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay.
I hope you enjoy these two perspectives on yesterday's press conference as much as I did.
See you on Boston Harbor!
