Emerald Partners Program

The Emerald Necklace provides important environmental, educational, recreational and health benefits for all who use it and serves as a magnet for attracting Boston residents and visitors to the area.

The Emerald Necklace Conservancy offers many ways for corporations, colleges and universities, healthcare institutions and like-minded organizations to give back to the community in which they are based, and to offer employees and their families a unique experience to engage in community service and foster teamwork. We invite you to join the Emerald Partners Program today!
