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 to Labor Day. 

For four of those 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.
