Event description

Description

Spend a Saturday with the New Youth Conservationists at the Bronx River Flotilla!

Join Christodora's New Youth Conservationists in volunteering at the 2018 Bronx River Flotilla, a 5-mile paddle down the Bronx River in celebration of the progress that the Bronx River Alliance has made in reclaiming the river as a place that children can explore and play!

53 Canoes will be coming down the river and they need help in getting around the waterfall in the NY Botanical Garden! That's where Christodora volunteers are essential: we will help Flotilla participants with a portage within the Garden, wheeling their canoes down a path from the takeout point to put-in on the other side of the waterfall. This is a duty that we as a team proudly take care of every year and it is essential to the success of this wonderful event!

Snacks, water, and bathrooms will be available throughout the day. Please call the Christodora office with any questions at (212) 371-5225 and RSVP today!

On the day of the event, call Alejandro at 917-371-3441.

FREE T-SHIRTS FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE ONE! OR IF YOU HAVE A T-SHIRT FROM CHRISTODORA, PLEASE WEAR IT! (everyone must be in a Christodora t-shirt!)

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ENTERED IN A RAFFLE FOR SPECIAL PRIZES!! :D
