A generation ago, Boston Harbor was miserably polluted, its 34 neglected harbor islands home to garbage and abandoned military bases. Thanks to decades of hard work led by the Boston Harbor Islands Alliance (BHIA) and The Boston Harbor Association (TBHA), the harbor and waterfront are now thriving, including a new Boston Harbor Island National Park. To build on their collective successes and meet new challenges brought on by sea level rise, BHIA and TBHA merged into a new organization, Boston Harbor Now. A SeaChange-Lodestar Fund grant supported the merger.
