Glad to be back!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Imani Dorsey and this is my second year at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. It's great to be back and learn more about the Boston Harbor and also take the stuff that I learned and share it with others. I am still a JPA( Junior Program Assistant) and I am about to go into my senior year of high school.

On the second day of Orientation
Since last year, I've learned so much about the Boston Harbor and how to fish. With the knowledge that I gained from working last year, it was fun sharing my knowledge about the different creature and the islands. Last year, I worked at Piers Park and with All Access and both sights had something unique about them. At Piers, I worked with kids that were between the ages of six and nine. Going down on the docks and pulling the crab traps up was one of my favorite parts about working there. This is because of how the kids would react to seeing a bunch of crabs. Some would be little scared while others would look at them with wonder. Some would be scared of picking them up while others would just go right ahead and pick them up. At the end of the week, the kids that were scared of the crabs or scared of picking them up would be picking them up and even offer to help pull up the crab traps. Although Piers Park was fun, there wasn't that much exploring going on. So when I was assigned to do All Access, I was excited to actually go and spend time at the Boston harbor islands. While working at All Access, I learned more about the islands and the history that the islands had to offer. This year I'm stationed at All Access and Camp Harbor so I'll be learning even more about the harbor islands. Well, that's it for now. I'll be back ready to tell you guys more about my exciting stories about the harbor.

See you guys on the harbor,
Imani Dorsey
