Community Outreach Coordinator
Join Alliance programs to protect, improve, and restore the Bronx River corridor
Our foundation is community support and involvement in the Bronx River and its parks. Our Outreach programs connect you to the Bronx River, through robust volunteer programs and special events.
We offer many ways to help, whether you join in yourself or as part of a community organization, school, corporate group, or park leadership. Volunteer opportunities include:
Connect with a “Friends of the Bronx River” group The Outreach Program starts and supports these groups. If you’re already in a group, we can link you with other groups, to learn from each other and be stronger collectively. These groups and your efforts promote the Bronx River so encouraging others join in efforts to restore and reclaim the River.
More ways The Outreach Program can help: Plan a river event, connect your school or organization to the river, support fundraising to restore your river.
We look forward to working together on changing our borough.
The Outreach Program works to spur more community support for and involvement in the Bronx River and its parks.
The Bronx River Alliance’s volunteer program is grateful for the financial support of long-time funder Con Edison.
Accomplishments over the last few years include:
The Bronx River Foodway is an edible food forest at Concrete Plant Park. It was developed in 2017 to examine if a sustainable food landscape can be integrated into a public park—and it can! Aside from providing food and medicinal plants, we’ve jump-started thinking about new ways to use land within the city.
Visit the Foodway, virtually or in person! And come pitch in to help us with the gift of growing.
The Amazing Bronx River Flotilla is one of the most exciting ways to get out on the water and explore the Bronx River.
