February feels synonymous with deepest winter, but it also carries with it the warmth of Valentine’s Day and the opportunity to learn from and reflect deeply on the past as we enter Black History Month. It’s a month when many students take a break from school and bring their learning outside. Whatever February has in store for you, I hope you’ll find time to bundle up and step out on the waterfront to find your own reasons to love our harbor in winter.
This month, Boston Harbor Now is hoping you’ll share that love with us with our first ever I ❤️ Boston Harbor Photo Hunt. There will be plenty of opportunities to fall in love with the waterfront all over again, starting with the Moakley Park Winter Warmer – a free afternoon of games, crafts, warm beverages, and other fun in South Boston’s largest green space. History buffs will want to tune into the Revolutionary Harbor lecture series, kicking off this month with a look back in time at the history of quarantine in Boston Harbor. The adventurous at heart will want to snag a ticket to the Peddocks Island Winter Wander and experience the winter beauty of this fascinating, historic Boston Harbor Island.
I hope you’ll come share everything there is to learn and love this month on the waterfront! Have a happy Lunar New Year!
