Eleven different agencies make up the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership, the federally legislated body that governs the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park.
The Boston Harbor Islands Partnership is part of what makes this park truly unique. Several members of the Partnership own and manage islands or portions of islands, while other agencies and non-profits support the park’s activities through oversight, fundraising, programming, and planning.
Together, these organizations support the mission of Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park:
To make the Boston Harbor Islands system — with opportunities for education, recreation, and restful solitude within an urban area — an integral part of the life of the region and the nation by protecting the islands and their associated resources while at the same time improving public knowledge and access.
