About the Friends of Good Harbor

Friends of Good Harbor, Inc. is a citizen-based organization dedicated to the natural, recreational, and educational uses of the expanse of land and water located along the ocean front and traversed by Thatcher Road in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  FOGH’s mission is to foster environmental preservation, restoration, and enhancement of the Good Harbor beach and marsh and its watershed. Reaching out to all neighborhoods abutting Good Harbor - such as Brier Neck, Old Nugent Farm, Witham Street, Marina Drive, Starknaught Heights, and Bass Rocks - members work on project initiatives and meet collectively on a periodical basis.  FOGH is incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a non-profit corporation with pending status under Section 501(c)(3) of the federal tax code. The organization maintains a web site for members and the public at www.goodharbor.org. FOGH is planning to expand its membership in 2012, concentrating initially on local outreach especially around the marsh area and East Gloucester but also throughout the city and even beyond.
