Organization description:  Save the Harbor/Save the Bay is a non-profit, public interest harbor advocacy organization made up of thousands of citizens as well as civic, corporate, cultural and community leaders and scientists. Our mission is to restore and protect Boston Harbor, Massachusetts Bay, and the marine environment and share them with the public for all to enjoy.

Save the Harbor was founded in 1986 by the attorney who initiated the Boston Harbor Case, the judge who first heard it, the reporter who covered the case for the Boston Globe and a passionate advocate who wanted to make Boston Harbor clean enough for her children to enjoy.

Today we are the region’s leading voice for clean water and continued public investment in Boston Harbor, the region’s public beaches, the Boston Harbor Islands and serve as the Boston Harbor Connection for a generation of young people and their families. In 2013, our free youth environmental education and family programs connected nearly 16,000 underserved young people and their families to Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Islands.
