It’s Women’s History Month and a wonderful time to acknowledge the ongoing work of women all around Boston Harbor. We have women at the helm of in government, businesses, and nonprofits who are making a difference in their communities. I hope you will tune in on March 23 for the next installment of the National Park Service’s Revolutionary Harbor lecture series. I will be moderating this month’s conversation, and look forward to welcoming a few of the extraordinary women leaders working on revolutionizing Boston Harbor today.
As we spring forward and change our clocks each March, we also anticipate better weather for reconnecting with the great outdoors and restarting our monthly clean-ups at Moakley Park. We can’t wait to see the bulbs that we planted last fall beginning to grow, adding to the already rich textures of the park.
As we enter the season celebrating the 25th and 50th Anniversary of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park, respectively, we can start visiting The Trustees’ World’s End, DCR’s Webb State Park, and MWRA’s Nut and Deer Islands, as well as the many other waterfront parks all around Boston Harbor. So bundle up, or at least grab an extra layer, and start to count the days until programs begin to spring up at our beaches and ferry service resumes to our Islands.
To longer and warmer days together,
Katherine F. Abbott
