Michael Francis, Managing Director, expressed that "the Hines group, from the very top, makes sure we are giving back to our community", and the 20 plus volunteers did just that. Hines owns and developed the Meriel Marina Bay housing complex, located on the waterfront of Squantum Point Park. As stated by Managing Director, Sean Sacks, Squatum Point Park is a "hidden gem in the Department of Conservation and Recreation network, and we are excited to be out here cleaning up for both the residents of Marina Bay and Massachusetts citizens at large". That hidden gem certainly got polished this week!

Save the Harbor/Save the Bay is proud to be partners with the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Hines. "With incredible partners like these, creating opportunities for Massachusetts residents to enjoy the beaches, parks, and harbor is as fun as it is impactful," said Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay Executive Director, Chris Mancini. We at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay want to give a big thank you on behalf of us and the community members who will be enjoying Squatum Point Park to the Hines group and the Department of Conservation and Recreation for their incredible effort!
