FREE Events and Programs

Summer is finally here! Check out our FREE upcoming events and programs below.

Save the Harbor/Save the Bay believes that the best way to "save the harbor" is to "share the harbor." Boston Harbor is an incredible urban natural resource that everyone should have access to. We are excited to offer the below events in order to bring everyone out on the water and to our region's urban beaches this summer and beyond!
