    Ocean Stewardship Showcase: Boston Harbor Alison Nolan, Boston Harbor Cruises, Elisabeth Colby, Boston harbor Islands, live blue� Ambassadors, New England Aquarium To preserve and protect a resource like Boston Harbor, it takes a lot of people. Join us for a special lecture event featuring a few of the many businesses, non-profits and teens making a difference every day. We'll start with a look at the past and present state of Boston Harbor with Elisabeth Colby, Education Program Coordinator and Technician of the Boston Harbor Islands. Then participants in the New England Aquarium's live blue� Ambassadors program, a service learning program for youth, will talk about various projects they have been involved in around Boston Harbor. This stellar group of teens will present on their efforts to restore the native species and habitats of the Boston Harbor. During the summer this group of teens took part in clam seeding, eel grass plantings and a water quality cruise to look at the health of the harbor and the human influences affecting this important urban waterway. We'll finish with Alison Nolan, Principal and General Manager of Boston Harbor Cruises. A family owned business since 1926, BHC sees conservation and stewardship as an important part of their daily mission. Please join us for this great, family-friendly lecture event and learn more about one of the busiest harbors on the east coast
