Boston Harbor Ecosystem Network
The Boston Harbor Ecosystem Network (formerly Boston Harbor Habitat Coalition) is comprised of individuals and organizations with interest in protecting, restoring, and educating the public about estuarine resources within the Metro Boston region the MassBays National Estuary Program. You can read more about Metro Boston area watersheds and habitats here.
Initiated in 2011 as the Boston Harbor Habitat Coalition, it changed its name in 2016 to reflect the interests and priorities of participating stakeholders. Participants may be unaffiliated individuals or may represent local, state, and federal agencies, watershed and community groups, academic institutions, informal science education centers, the private sector, and citizen science efforts. All are welcome to attend and participate in BHEN meetings and events.
The BHEN meets twice a year to learn about and discuss Network and other related projects, to network with others, and to learn from experts and practitioners about best practices in estuary health and management. To subscribe to the BHEN e-newsletter, click here. You can also follow it on Facebook.
