The Boston Harbor Islands National Park sits in our front yard here in Squantum, and features 34 islands and 35 miles of coastline. Join us as Park Ranger Donald Cann guides us through the many treasures of the park, including hiking trails, beaches, ranger-led tours, camping, kayaking, nature walks, and historic sites. Don will share a bit about the history of the islands, including how they were saved, cleaned up, and eventually designated a National Park.

As we kick off the summer, come learn about the beauty, tranquility, history, and outdoor activities we all can enjoy at the Boston Harbor Islands.

Free event. Bring a friend!

Please join us to hear stories of humor, peril, tremendous joy, ardent belief, longtime friendships, and simple pleasures in the seaside community of Squantum, a neighborhood of Quincy, Massachusetts.

Together we will remember a time when Huckins Avenue was a tree-lined road nestled between open fields, when neighbors caught up at the beloved corner store, or waited together in war time ration lines, spent lazy summer days on the beach, or raced boats across Quincy Bay. And who doesn’t have a great story about that cherished Squantum tradition, the Fourth of July parade?

Come hear a few great stories, and share a few of your own over refreshments.

Storytellers will include Ralph Ames, Sr., Marie Clark, Pat Duggan, Mary LaFlamme, Maureen Mazrimus, Jim and Sandi Sumner, Bob Sealund, Jack Westerbeke, and Ruth Ann Wetherby. The evening will be moderated by Bill Geary, Squantum resident and chairman of the City of Quincy Planning Board.
