Students kayaking in the Biomimicry LivingLabs 
Savin Hill Cove

We are excited to share our current work in the Boston Harbor with you, including the possibility for restoring some of the harbor's lost and degraded coastal habitats through the Biomimicry LivingLabs.

Students are the key to the GHP's success, as many of these projects are student-led. The student projects address local community issues and positively contribute to student employments post-graduation, they are all presented in the accompanying pages.

We welcome and strongly encourage community and organizational support for the student’s work.  If you would like to learn more, please visit our Adopt-a-Student for a green job page.
