The Chinese Delegation Vistis the Bronx River Alliance and the River

On Friday, November 11th, the Bronx River Alliance had the honor of receiving a Chinese delegation with ten experts from the Department of Fisheries or Marine related sectors.

Accompanied by Ms. Allison N. Schwier, officer of the U.S. Department of State, the Chinese Delegation received an overview of current Bronx River restoration projects that directly address water pollutants. The Alliance, along with NYC Parks, Natural Resources Group representative, Danielle Bissett, gave a tour of some of the different ecology projects along the river. The visitors learned about rain gardens at Starlight Park and our trash removal project at Concrete Plant Park, where in addition to learning about the trash boom, the delegation learned about the history of the industrial site and how through community activism it became an ecological, educational, and recreational resource to the community around it.
