Despite record cold in June, record heat in July and more rain so far this summer than we had all last year, it has been another record-breaking summer for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s free Youth Environmental Education Programs.
Despite the wild weather, our 34 youth program staffers have already connected more than 15,000 underserved young people and their families to Boston Harbor, the Boston Harbor Islands and the region’s public beaches since our season began with free Tall Ships programs in June.
You won’t be surprised to learn that demand for our free, first rate environmental education and recreation programs is at an all time high. To meet that demand, we have decided to extend our summer season with 3 additional free trips to Spectacle Island during the last week of August and free weekend trips to the Boston Harbor Islands National Park in September and October.
Your contribution of $25, $250, or $2,500 will help us Share the Harbor with 2,500 more youth, teens and their families during the late summer and fall.
We know you value and appreciate the work we do to restore, protect and share Boston Harbor, the harbor islands and our public beaches, which has made us the Boston Harbor Connection for the region’s underserved young people and their families.
We hope that we can count on you to make a generous contribution today to support our free youth environmental education programs this summer and fall. It means the world to us, and to the thousands of youth and teens we serve.
All the best,
Joseph P. Newman, Patricia A. Foley and Bruce Berman
