Please join Riverkeeper and the North Brooklyn Boat Club on September 30th for an afternoon dedicated to fighting for our local water bodies and improving water quality across neighborhoods, regions and nations. The event will feature presentations from a number of local organizations including the Newtown Creek Alliance and New York City Water Trail Association. We will also be celebrating the arrival of the Capital to Capitol by Canoe expedition in NYC. A project of the Canadian Wildlife Federation, this 1800 kilometer paddle will travel on rivers, lakes, canals, harbors and bays from Ottawa to Washington D.C. in a 34 foot voyageur canoe.

Come meet and learn the latest from the leading organizations and individuals fighting to improve water quality, restore our harbor’s vibrant ecology and enable greater access and safe use of our waterways. Meet the Capital to Capitol crew, with the opportunity to paddle Newtown Creek in the expedition canoe from 3 to 5 pm, on-land presentations follow from 5 to 7 pm.
