2017 City of Water Day Memories — Public Program.


Happy novice kayakers.

HarborLAB volunteers at our education and sign-in table. 

HarborLAB volunteers provided free kayaking to hundreds of participants on Governors Island, the centerpiece of this premier NYC water ecology festival. It happens that HarborLAB Founder Erik Baard also founded the Five Borough Harbor Ramble, which became City of Water Day. We also provided an education table and met with environmental educators, activists, agencies, and students. Thanks to favorable tidal currents, we had the pleasure of paddling to the island on Saturday morning and back on Sunday morning. Campers enjoyed an astronomical navigation lecture from Captain Margaret Flanagan, education director at Waterfront Alliance, the producer of City of Water Day. A beautiful weekend!
