Morgan Powell, 1973 – 2014


The Bronx River Alliance joins in so many expressions of shock and sadness at the passing of Morgan Powell. He loved the outdoors and the Bronx River, and he will be sorely missed by so many. Here he is pictured leading a tree walk along Bronx Park East in 2013, and this New York Daily News article describes other walks along the Bronx River that he gave highlighting African-American history. May we keep alive his contributions to Bronx–and Bronx River–history! A beautiful tribute to his life is available at welcome2thebronx.com
