FREE Summer 2019 Events With Save The Harbor

Summer is finally here! Check out our FREE upcoming events and programs below.
At Save the Harbor/Save the Bay we believe the best way to "save the harbor" is to "share the harbor." We are committed to connecting as many people as possible to the harbor by offering a variety of free events throughout the summer. Boston Harbor is an incredible urban natural resource that everyone should have access to, and we hope these experiences will continue to bring everyone out on the water and to our region's urban beaches this summer and beyond!

To join us at any, or all, of these events and programs, register at the links below. Updates regarding these free events can be found on our social media outlets on Twitter and Instagram (@savetheharbor) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/savetheharbor). Use the Hashtag #sharetheharbor to be featured on our social media sites.
