With membership representing several segments of the greater Boston Harbor community, the Council is the primary mechanism used by the Partnership public involvement on matters of park planning and management.

Council members are appointed by the Secretary of the Interior through the Director of the National Park Service. The park superintendent is the Federal Official that oversees the Council's operation.
