Boston Harbor Explorers @ DCR's Carson Beach



Join Save the Harbor/Save the Bay, The Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the South Boston Neighborhood House this summer for a day – or days - of healthy outdoor activities and youth environmental education and enrichment programs on the cleanest urban beach in the nation!

Onsite activities include fishing, clamming, and environmental exploration, soccer, volleyball, and kite flying, storytelling by the sea, and art on the shore.
