Comm Dev. – Genesee Gateway Riverfest
October 7, 2018 12:00 pmFree
RocCity Coalition and Rochester Young Professionals are teaming up with the Genesee Gateway Center to connect residents with a new side of the river. As part of the City of Rochester’s Roc The Riverway Festival (formerly River Romance Weekend), participants will have an opportunity to experience all that the river has to offer on October 6th from 12-4pm.
The Genesee Gateway Riverfest is an exploration of the “South River” ecosystem. Join us for guided hikes, nature activities, and discussions with experts from the Seneca Park Zoo, Genesee Riverwatch, and Grow Green Rochester. You will learn about the Genesee River, local wildlife and the health of the river’s ecosystem.
The Genesee Gateway Center Project is a grassroots effort to create a place for environmental and community connection on the lot at 151 Mount Hope. Their mission is to build a connected and sustainable Rochester.
Participants are encouraged to bike or walk to the event; parking is available on side streets off of Mt. Hope.
