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!

TBT: Justine Mee Liff Park in the Back Bay Fens, circa 1960 and today. By covering up the Muddy River, the parking lot seen at left led to significant flooding of the Fenway area in 1996. Thanks to @CorpsNewEngland, the river, and the parkland around it, are being restored.
