Come Paddle at the Cove This Summer

kayak2015The past few years, we’ve worked with a variety of kayak groups and other waterfront activists (Long Island City Community Boathouse, NYC Water Trail Association, Urban Swim and Lower East Side Ecology Center, to name a few) to launch a kayak program at Stuyvesant Cove. The program has been such a big success that next year, the city will be installing a special dock to use in an ongoing kayak program.

Rewilding Stuyvesant Cove Park on Saturday June 6 at 5pm

rewilding_blogRachel Frank will be presenting a performance based on rewilding, an environmental practice that seeks to reestablish the landscape’s former ecosystems and increase sustainability by reintroducing species to areas in which they had formerly thrived but have since gone extinct. In Frank’s performance, actors wearing American bison head masks will symbolically rewild Stuyvesant Cove against the backdrop of the East River and views of Brooklyn and Queens. Performing in Stuyvesant Cove, a park established on land that was once an abandoned industrial site, this performance is part of a larger project, which uses the concept of rewilding to explore how we think about the landscape around us—its past, present and sustainability into the future.

Cranksgiving Returns to Solar One This Saturday

Cranksgiving is an annual bike ride/scavenger hunt/food drive, helping to feed the hungry on Thaksgiving for the past 15 years. And unlike other, much more notorious holiday food drives, this one does not involve drinking (until the afterparty, of course), carolling or the despoiling of sidewalks or stoops. Costumes are optional!

Collected food will be donated to the Bowery Mission, a fantastic NYC charity for the homeless. Their pantry shelves are pretty bare right now, so they need you more than ever!
