Boston Harbor Island's SunAWARE Project

Building upon our partnership with US SAILING we expanded our local efforts to include a partnership with the Department of Conservation and Greenway AllRecreation (DCR), Boston Harbor Now, and the National Park Service. The Boston Harbor Island’s SunAWARE Project includes training of permanent and seasonal staff, and six on-site educational programs for visitors that included the distribution of a program bookmark and Neutrogena sunscreen. The staff evaluations included comments suggesting that they were applying more sunscreen than they had previously, reapplying sunscreen more frequently, and now consider it part of their “Personal Protective Equipment.”

In addition to the adult program, we trained Discovery Camp Administrators and provided resources, free-of-charge, for their counselors to use with the hundreds of Summer campers that visit the Islands.

Perkins School for the Blind partnered with us by providing two Summer Interns who provided information and sunscreen to visitors on Spectacle Island daily for six weeks. Together, we reached thousands of staff, campers, and visitors to the Boston Harbor Islands. We hope that this will be an annual joint educational venture.
