A Collection of Collages

My name is Ian James, a Senior Staff Assistant at Save the Harbor, and I create and curate content for our collages and other materials. Every year we have fantastic photographers who come to our events and join us on our programs. They provide us with so many wonderful pictures of what we do, and I take those images and turn them into exciting colorful collages that tell the story of our work and our impact. Through these collages you can see how our programs are fun and educational, and that they also connect a diverse group of people to the beaches and Boston Harbor in ways that they never would have without us.

On April 29 we hosted nearly 1,000 kids and their families on three
Marine Mammal Safaris on Boston Harbor to find harbor seals and porpoises.

On April 21, during school vacation week, we gave kids and families in Boston an opportunity to meet our pirate storyteller, Mary Reade, and interact with marine life in our touch tanks at the Boston Children's Museum.

On April 18 and 19, during school vacation week, we gave kids and families in Boston an opportunity to visit Atlantic Wharf to make fish print art, see and interact with lobsters, and try to their hand at fishing.

On March 5 more than 200 participants who raised more than $50,000 from over 800 donations jumped into Boston Harbor to raise money for free events and programs on Boston's public beaches in the Harpoon Shamrock Splash to Benefit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay.
