The Trustees’ Boston Waterfront Initiative advances a bold vision for iconic, public open space along our city’s waterfront as a way to bring positive change and address critical issues
In the face of climate change and coastal development, The Trustees has a responsibility to manage and preserve our coastal places. With buy-in from communities, conservation and research partners, and government we are developing creative ways to ensure that the Massachusetts coast is protected for generations to come.
The public gardens cared for and protected by The Trustees are a living documentary of Massachusetts horticulture and design traditions.
The Trustees has designed an innovative, year-long initiative presenting the stories of American identity connected to its properties, using various visual arts, poetry, music, dance, conversations, interactions and publications.
Part of our mission is to protect the scenic, historic, and ecological treasures of each reservation while providing access for visitors.
We want you to experience Trustees reservations to their fullest, whether you're spending time with friends and family or seeking quiet time by yourself.
