Ready to make a difference? Lend a hand in your parks!


Help Boston Harbor Now, alongside the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park, preserve and protect our islands’ natural and cultural resources so that visitors can enjoy these special places for generations to come!




In an effort to promote volunteering on the harbor, we are asking that you help us make Boston Harbor a better place for visitors and wildlife to enjoy, by picking up trash along the harbor.

Head out to your favorite beach or explore somewhere new, by yourself or with a group, and record the trash you collect through the Ocean Conservancy’s App or this form. Then dispose of trash properly and share your efforts back with us and online with #BostonHarborVolunteer!


If you have any questions please contact us at



Join Boston Harbor Now and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at Moakley Park to give back to your community and enjoy the beauty of this waterfront park! All necessary tools, including gloves, pickers, bags, sharp containers and safety instructions will be provided. Clean up events take place the fourth Saturday of each month from 9:00 -11:00 AM.
