"PangeaSeed Foundation is proud to collaborate with Boston Harbor Now and Friends of the Boston HarborWalk to host a community Harborwalk clean-up for Sea Walls Boston during Eastie Week. Our coastlines, beaches, and harbors are critical habitats for numerous marine species and support the livelihoods of those who live in the region. Without healthy oceans, life on land becomes drastically challenging and we must do whatever we can to help protect and conserve our marine natural resources." Tré Packard - PangeaSeed Foundation Founder and Executive Director
*Note*: If the event of your choice is full but you are interested in participating in future Moakley Park Cleanups, please contact Boston Harbor Now's volunteer coordinator, Merrin Meltzer at email@example.com
About the Friends of the Boston Harborwalk:
The FBHW is a group of volunteers with a mission to create awareness, promote public enjoyment, and foster local stewardship of Boston’s 43-mile Harborwalk. The group meets monthly to plan and coordinate three priorities:
Host informative monthly two-hour tours highlighting different Harborwalk segments.
Develop engaging and site-specific interpretive signs for residents and visitors along the Harborwalk and collaborating with waterfront property owners and other stakeholders on their installation.
Organize waterfront clean-up events and reporting maintenance concerns to help ensure that the entire length of the Harborwalk is clean, safe, and inviting.
