Description

Part of the series The Boston Harbor Islands - Resilience and Change, Co-Presented by Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands and Old South Meeting House and Co-Sponsored by Boston Harbor Now. Image courtesy of Boston Harbor Now.

Peddocks Island, a series of drowned drumlins, is part of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park. It's currently the largest of the 34 Boston Harbor Islands that is open to the public. Home to historic Fort Andrews, walking tours, geological features, and archaeological sites, the island is in the midst of an exciting redevelopment planning process led by Boston Harbor Now with the National Park Service and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Cheri Ruane of Weston & Sampson Design Studio, lead consultant for the island’s development plan, and Alice Brown of Boston Harbor Now, will discuss fascinating highlights of the island’s past, present, and future.

Join us from 6:00-6:30 for a celebration of Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands' 40th anniversary, with light refreshments and interactive exhibits.
