Led By Amelia Zaino AND Carl Lundgren, Hutchinson River Restoration Project
Join the Hutchinson River Restoration Project for a 1.5 mile walk from Bartow Avenue in Co-Op City to the Pelham Bridge in Pelham Bay Park. Along the way, we’ll explore spectacular vistas of the Hutchinson River and the Thomas Pell Wildlife Sanctuary. We’ll discuss the history, current threats, and future of the Hutchinson River and ways we can all work together to preserve and protect this invaluable natural resource.
Note that the official walk is “one-way”. Participants may choose to reverse and walk back with us to Bartow Avenue, or take the Bx29 bus to retrieve their vehicles if they are parked in Co-Op City.
The route is 1.5 miles with slight hills and the potential for roots and other debris in the path. It is wheelchair accessible. Public transportation to the starting site is available (Bx28, Bx26, Bx30, Q50, Bx29, Bx12, Bx23, BxM7 buses), and public transportation from our end point to the start site is also available (Bx29).
RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
