Eric Soto has been dedicated to preserving the river for years! His passion for the river has been incomparable. He also recently retired from his long time position as the Director of Bronx Regional and Community Affairs at Con Edison.
Liam Kavanagh, the first Deputy Commissioner at NYC Parks, has been a long term supporter of the Alliance. He has helped to encourage folks to maintain The Bronx River. His dedication is unmatched and his impact along the watershed is incredible.
On April 22, 1999 (Earth Day) the gilded ball first floated down the Bronx River from suburban Bronxville to inner-city South Bronx. The ball acted as a Pied Piper, with people from the Bronx to Westchester County encouraged to follow the Ball and walk the 10 mile route to learn how the River connects their homes. The voyage revealed the prime places for social gatherings along the River as well as access problems to be addressed. The event took place on Earth Day the following year and in 2001. Residents continue to celebrate the Bronx River by recreating the voyage every Earth Day. The events have raised money to make permanent improvements along the River.
