MassBays' mission is to enable and support the gathering of information to provide a strong scientific basis for management decisions. Guided by our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan, or "Blueprint for the Bays," MassBays strives to provide technical support and scientific information to local and regional efforts to improve the health of our estuaries and the livelihood of communities dependent upon them.


MassBays has produced a free, outdoor Science Walk! Visitors to the Bays can learn about the research, restoration, and monitoring activities underway with MassBays' support. The Science Walk will be on display at the following locations:

June 28-July 28: Martin's Park, near the Boston Children's Museum, Boston.
August 13-September 10: Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Brewster.
More locations to come!
