The metropolitan Waterfront Alliance by Carter Craft

Carter Craft, co-founder of the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance (MWA) described the mission and activities of the MWA. The illustrated presentation showed how MWA works to “transform the New York and New Jersey harbor and waterways to make them clean and accessible, a vibrant place to play, learn, and work, with great parks, great jobs, and great transportation for all.” Activities include teaching children to swim, incorporating ferries into our mass transit system, restoring wildlife habitats, and installing kayak launches and town docks.

Members of the MWA include over 100 nonprofits and schools in the NY/ NJ area, such as Floating the Apple, Village Community Boathouse, New York Harbor School, Sea Scouts, the New York Restoration Project, Weehawken Community Boathouse, Rocking the Boat Foundation and others on the waterfronts of New York City and New Jersey.

NMHA promotes its programs and activities including River Rangers, and the Wooden Boat Festival by collaboration with organizations in the alliance.
