Recently on August 5th, Teaneck Creek Conservancy hosted a virtual celebration of the history, ecology, and art of Teaneck Creek park, while reflecting upon the legacy of their founder, Perry Rosenstein, who was sadly lost to the pandemic this year.
According to Executive Director, Alexa Fantacone, “We are so grateful for everyone that made this event a huge success! While we switched gears to an online virtual program, we were unsure how our viewership would react, but we were very pleased with the outcome.”
The event, known as the Midsummer Soiree: A Walk Through the Wetlands virtual gala, featured exciting performances from Englewinds award winning eco-music ensemble, the Nikki Manx Dance Project, and an inspiring acoustic performance by Steve Kelman.
Teaneck Creek was honored to award $1,000 to both Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps for their selfless service to the residents of Teaneck during the pandemic and the New Jersey Environmental Justice Alliance for their work organizing, educating and training organizations to mitigate environmental injustice in low income communities and communities of color.
The event will remain posted on the Conservancy’s website and the public is invited to view the virtual tour and fundraising event and to continue to share it with their family and friends and make donations to support Teaneck Creek Conservancy’s environmental education programing, eco-art learning and habitat restoration work. “Thank you for walking through the wetlands with us and supporting our Urban Oasis.” Fantacone added. The event can be viewed and donations made at http://www.teaneckcreek.org/midsummer
Consider making a donation today. For every contribution of $25 or more made on or before August 21st 2020, Teaneck Creek Conservancy will be planting a tree or shrub in their forested wetland to combat erosion and provide habitats for wildlife. Check out their website for more information.
