The Emerald Necklace Conservancy

The Emerald Necklace Conservancy connects people and parks and conserves the Emerald Necklace through projects and programs to enrich the visitor experience and restore and renew the landscape, waterways and parkways.

To steward the Emerald Necklace’s 1,100 acres of parkland extending from Boston’s Back Bay through Brookline and Jamaica Plain to Franklin Park in Dorchester, the Conservancy works in collaboration with its partners on advocacy, maintenance and restoration, education and access, and the promoting of park stewardship through volunteer and youth programs.

The Wagner Foundation supports organizations that help communities improve, sustain, and extend their green spaces. Connecting people to parks is important for public health and for encouraging common culture.
