Volunteer Citizen Scientists help us understand the flora and fauna that live and breed on the islands and the environmental factors that influence them. Join us on any Stewardship Saturday program to get involved. Sign up for Stewardship & Science updates by joining our park community.

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.
