Support the Emerald Necklace Today
Today more than ever, our parks are the perfect places to exercise, meditate, recharge and enjoy a change of scenery. For Boston and Brookline residents and neighboring communities, the Emerald Necklace – with six parks and 1,100 acres to spread out in – is the primary destination for respite and recreation. Your support of our parks matters. A gift to the Emerald Necklace Conservancy today ensures the health, vibrancy and safety of these valuable green spaces for all.
Make a gift to our Emerald Fund today to sustain our parks, make possible our activities and advocacy efforts, and advance our work wherever the need is greatest.
Additional ways to support the Conservancy:
- Gifts to the Justine Mee Liff Fund support restoration and capital improvements throughout the Emerald Necklace.
Gifts to Olmsted Now: Greater Boston’s Olmsted Bicentennial support the planning and programs of a Greater Boston area partnership effort to mark Olmsted’s legacy and plan for the public green spaces of tomorrow.
- Gifts to the Olmsted Tree Society make possible the care of more than 8,000 trees in the Emerald Necklace.
Through the financial support of individuals like you, we fulfill our mission to restore our parks, increase access and engage our community with these landmarked spaces. Thank you!
