Boston Harbor Islands Partnership

The Boston Harbor Islands Partnership represents a range of federal, state, city, and nonprofit agencies. The Partnership coordinates the activities of the managers of the islands in the development and implementation of a management plan for their islands and the national park as a whole.

The Partnership was established as a federal operating committee by the park's enabling legislation. Each year the Partnership elects a chairperson and vice-chairperson.
