Let’s clean up the stink at King’s Beach – by Yvonne Abraham
Thursday morning, I was at one of my favorite places: King’s Beach, straddling Lynn and Swampscott. King’s speaks to much that is great about this country. It’s a gorgeous, well-maintained public space, with a handsome promenade.

Beating the Heat at the Beach Bash & Splash @ DCR’s Carson Beach
Three-hundred and fifty kids from across the city and around the region, including groups from South Boston, Dorchester, the South End, Jamaica Plain and Lynn made a very big splash on the beach Aug. 5 at Save the Harbor’s 6th Annual Beach Bash and Splash at DCR’s Carson Beach.

What’s she doing on the beach with that weird thing on her back? By Johanna Seltz
Christina Balzotti is spending her summer striding along the water’s edge of nearly 20 miles of state-owned beaches in Boston Harbor with a 50-pound pack on her back connected to a helmet-like ball towering over her head — and looking more than a little like an alien as she takes 360-degree photos of the shoreline for Google Maps.

Sharing the Harbor Like Never Before: A Letter from Our President
We began our 30th Anniversary Year with a sunset cruise to Boston Light in the spring and ended it with a free fall trip to Spectacle Island in late October. As we looked back toward the city with our community  partners and our friends and supporters, we couldn’t help but think back on all we have accomplished together since 1986.

Thanks to all of our foundation funders, corporate sponsors, and the more than 1,000 individual donors who help make our work possible. You can find a full list at
