New York City’s Freshwaters from Headlands to Harbor: Alewives and the Bronx River

Science of the Living City and the Natural Areas Conservancy, in partnership with the Bronx River Alliance and THE POINT Community Development Center, are hosting a panel discussion focused on the Bronx River.

Join us as we celebrate NYC’s rivers and streams, the people who champion them, and the return the alewife!

Missing from NYC for over 300 years, the return of the alewife herring to the Bronx River marks a new chapter in restoring the health of the City’s last remaining freshwater river.

Our panel of experts and community leaders will discuss the history of freshwater systems in our city, their current state, the significance of the return of the alewife, ongoing efforts to improve the health of the Bronx River, and how community organizations are getting involved.

Join us at THE POINT’s theater to participate in the conversation!

Free food and refreshment will be available.
