Birding led by Rocking the Boat staff will be available on select Community Rowing Saturdays

Through Community Rowing, Hunts Point residents of all ages explore the Bronx River aboard student-built wooden row boats, accompanied by staff who teach them about the local waterways.  The free program takes place every Saturday from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend.

Four weekend days, community members can also try their hand at sailing.  Community Sailing aims to make sailing a staple of the South Bronx waterfront.

Community Birding brings birdwatching to the shores of the Bronx River. Identify and learn about local species with knowledgeable guides. Binoculars and field guides will be provided. 

No reservations required. Dates are subject to change. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult guardian.
