ABOUT US

The Harborkeepers was founded in 2016 to build coastal community resiliency and to foster environmental stewardship in East Boston and other communities of the Boston Harbor.  As local residents, leaders and community members who live, work and play in this unique and special neighborhood, we leverage everyday meaningful engagement opportunities with environmental programming while fostering collective advocacy to build coastal resiliency. We believe that fomenting critical trust-based partnerships working collaboratively builds sustainable social and physical resiliency of the neighborhood, thereby protecting the people, environment and infrastructure of this island community from increasing climate and environmental impacts.
