Land Protection

Paddling the Neponset Estuary, just upstream of Squantum Point Park, Quincy, May 2007.

Areas of undeveloped land are key to maintaining the health and function of the Neponset River Watershed, its biodiversity, community character, public recreation opportunities, and public well-being, and we advocate for the acquisition, protection, and public access of these lands.
