Each summer Save the Harbor / Save the Bay offers a suite of free, first rate youth environmental education and recreation programs that share Boston Harbor with underserved kids and teens. They come from 120 youth and community groups from all of Boston's neighborhoods and from the beachfront communities from Nahant to Nantasket, including Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull. Since 2002, these free, first-rate Boston Harbor youth education and recreation programs have connected more than 90,000 youth and teens to Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Islands National Park.
By the end of the summer, Save the Harbor's free youth environmental education programs will have connected more than 100,000 youth and teens to Boston Harbor since we began them in 2002
Our youth programs run daily during the summer from the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion to Georges Island, Spectacle Island ,Peddock's Islandand on the docks of the Boston Harbor region's youth sailing centers, including the Courageous Sailing Center in Charlestown, Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston, The Harry McDonough Sailing Center in South Boston, Black's Creek in Quincy, and at Camp Harbor View, the Boston Children's Museum on the Fort Point Channel, and at Community Boating on the Charles River.

We also host or sponsor 30 free beach events and activities each summer in the city's waterfront neighborhoods and the region's beachfront communities from Nahant to Nantasket. This year these great evets included sand sculpting contests, concerts, family movie nights and youth beach parties, and brought more than 500,00 regional residents and visitors to enjoy the harbor, beaches and islands we have worked so hard to restore and protect. You can find out more about this year's events on this post on our blog "Sea, Sand & Sky"
None of these free programs would be possible without the support of hundreds of individual donors like you.
