Rocking the Boat grad’s turnaround reflects the river she serves

Rocking the Boat grad’s turnaround reflects the river she serves

After Toniann German was introduced to the Bronx River through Rocking the Boat as a troubled teen, she found that she couldn’t leave the river. Now she’s the new recreational coordinator for the Bronx River Alliance, running all of the canoeing and on-water education and conservation events and teaching people everything from how to paddle, to the history of the river, to the reasons to keep it clean.
