Canoe the Bronx Kill

We have engaged in 10 trips already this season on the Bronx Kill.  The latest was this past Friday, with the Harlem River Rangers and Highbridge.  All had a great time!  We conduct regular public trips and can arrange for your local school or organization a free excursion. We are also available for hire for out of area organizations and business and groups that have the resources to help subsidize our public programming.

Thanks to the Simon Bolivar Foundation for funding for this program.
