The Newtown Creek Alliance, which is dedicated to restoring community health, water quality, habitat, access, and vibrant water-dependent commerce along Newtown Creek, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a party Wednesday, Nov. 28. Riverkeeper is a founding member of the Alliance, and Riverkeeper Hudson River Program Director Phillip Musegaas, is an Alliance board member. He will speak at the anniversary party.
The celebration will include a recognition of Bernie Ente with a posthumous award for his work on Newtown Creek. Bernie served as a photographer, historian, educator and mediator, and he is greatly missed at NCA. Bernie laid the foundation for creating a visual record of Newtown Creek, and inspired us see the creek in a new light.
The party includes refreshments and cash bar.
