Boston Harbor Islands Advisory Council: Meetings
The Boston Harbor Islands Advisory Council meets approximately four times a year. Public notice is given for each meeting, including published notice in the Federal Register. All Council meetings are open to the public and listed on the meetings calendar. Public workshops, or "study sessions," may be occasionally held for background on matters that will be coming before the Council at a regular meeting. The March meeting is the annual meeting of the Advisory Council, and includes election of officers.
Record of Advisory Council discussions and votes are contained in the meeting minutes.

Scientists have recently identified a beach-dwelling ground beetle at Boston Harbor Islands that has not been seen in North America for over 100 years. It is believed the beetle, Bembmidion nigropiceum, was brought to Boston from Europe in the 1800s via ship ballasts.
