Think Globally, Act Locally

Join a community of dedicated scientists, students, researchers, government agencies, residents, and volunteers who support the work of the Stone Living Lab. We welcome everyone to learn more about climate change, coastal resiliency, and the testing of innovative nature-based solutions that help make Boston Harbor and the Islands more resilient to coastal flooding and sea level rise.

The recently launched Lab will soon offer a number of engagement opportunities described below. To stay up to date on the Lab’s opportunities and happenings, please sign up for the Lab email using the form at the bottom of this page.

FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES Explore Boston Harbor Through Live Streams

You will be able to check out the Lab’s live webcam to view weather conditions, sunrises, and sunsets. The Lab’s live-stream monitoring data will provide real-time weather data from the islands. We invite school groups and others to use these data for projects or fun!

FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES Participate in Future Community Science Projects

Community science (also known as citizen science) mobilizes community members and residents in the planning, development, and implementation of research and monitoring projects. Using Boston Harbor and the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park as a laboratory for place-based teaching and learning, the Lab’s hands-on approach will bring community members into the scientific process and give them the tools they need to become better informed about climate change and how it impacts their community.

Have an idea for a future community science project? Let’s brainstorm together! Contact us at to get started.
FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES Attend Events and Meetings

The Lab will convene events and meetings on various topics. To stay informed about events and meetings, please sign up for the Lab email list below.


Additional opportunities to get involved are still in development, and may include jobs, internships, and more. Please stay tuned!
