About Us

The Friends of the Blue Hills is a 1,000-member non-profit organization devoted to preserving and protecting the Blue Hills Reservation’s natural beauty, diverse natural habitats, and many recreational opportunities. To accomplish this we: advocate for actions that will enhance the Reservation and serve as a watchdog of activities that might adversely affect it; guide enthusiasts in exploring the nearby remoteness of the Blue Hills Reservation through educational, historical, and nature hikes; encourage involvement in the protection and preservation of the Reservation by all users; work with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to maintain the quality of the Reservation and provide public input for its management.

The foundation for all of our effort is based on our shared love for the Blue Hills Reservation, and our concern about maintaining healthy forests, beautiful views and wonderful opportunities for visitors today and for generations to come.

We have articulated our core values as follows:

  • We value an ecologically healthy Blue Hills Reservation.  We want generations to enjoy its healthy forests and waterways, its natural vistas and its open and easy access.

We further refined our values as follows:

Our primary values:

  • We value healthy, natural ecology.
  • We value the entire Reservation as a gift to us and to future generations.

Our secondary values:

  • We value visitors’ ability to enjoy the natural beauty and striking natural vistas of the Reservation.
  • We value open and easy access to the Reservation.
  • We value passive and active recreation and the infrastructure to support these activities.
