An Upstream Soirée

We are thrilled to present awards to three outstanding honorees for their commitment to the revitalization of the Bronx River through meaningful community engagement, as well as for their dedication to urban areas and fragile ecosystems around the world: 

  • Bronx River Alliance founding Executive Director Linda R. Cox who dedicated 15 remarkable years to the Bronx River and who retired in early 2017.
  • Edith McBean, long-time support of the Bronx River and champion of wildlife conservation both locally and abroad.
  • Mathy Stanislaus, whose work at the EPA revitalized communities around the country through cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites. Mr. Stanislaus’ technical and legal assistance to community residents was instrumental in the clean-up of Starlight Park, which is now a beloved and well-used park on Bronx River.
Join us in celebrating these remarkable honorees and their contributions to the Bronx River at An Upstream Soiree on Tuesday, October 10 at the NY Botanical Garden!
