Join New Youth Conservationists at the Bronx River Flotilla Sat, May 21st!

Join Christodora’s New Youth Conservationists in volunteering for the canoe portage at the 2016 Amazing Bronx River Flotilla.  This special day celebrates the progress that the Bronx River Alliance has made in reclaiming the river as a place that children can explore and play!

Christodora volunteers will be working to help Bronx River Flotilla participants with a portage within the New York Botanical Garden, wheeling their canoes down a path from the takeout point to put-in on the other side of a waterfall. This is a duty that we as a team proudly take care of every year and it is essential to the success of this wonderful event!

Snacks, water, and bathrooms will be available throughout the day. Please call the Christodora office with any questions at 212 371 5225 and RSVP today!
