Artist Matthew Jensen leads us on a walk through the Tibbetts Brook Estuary in Yonkers and the North West Bronx, with insights from reknowned ecologist Eric Sanderson and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection’s Pinar Balci and Tolga Yilmaz.
This virtual walk is a part of CALL/WALKS, an ongoing series of artist and scientist led public walks diving deep into urgent, local environmental concerns and innovative ideas to overcome them. This particular walk connects to CALL’s larger initiative in the Bronx: Rescuing Tibbetts Brook. This initiative is a constellation of artist and designer-led projects that raise awareness of and engage the community in plans to remove Tibbetts Brook from the sewer system and restore it as a surface-level naturalized stream connecting from Van Cortlandt Park to the Harlem River.
