On Sunday, June 22nd, artist Lillian Ball and Rocking the Boat kicked off WATERWASH Welcomes, a series of public celebrations of WATERWASH ABC, a green infrastructure project & a restored strip of riverbank on the Bronx River across from Concrete Plant Park. Rocking the Boat is a Bronx River Alliance partner that teaches Bronx students how to build and sail boats while educating them about costal ecosystems. Ball collaborated with these students to develop, plant, and eventually maintain the WATERWASH ABC project in order to empower them as potential experts and citizen scienctists about changes in the river. Read more about WATERWASH ABC here.
A tour of the WATERWASH ABC project and river rowing excursion hosted by Rocking the Boat will be held on Saturday, July 12th as a part of the "City of Water Day in Your Neighborhood."
