A huge thank you to all of the wonderful Conservancy Currents who made it out to the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball After Party! You guys truly made it a night to remember, and you raised money for the free public programs in Brooklyn Bridge Park. What else can we say? You're the best.

Happy spring to all of our Conservancy Currents!
It's been a busy couple of months for our young ambassadors, with a succesful 4th Annual Superfine fundraiser (see photos here) that brought a record number of 230 attendees and raised a record number of funds for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy's free public programs!
Our first-ever members-only volunteer day (see photos here) was also an awesome event as Currents got together to make the park we all love even more beautiful.
We are looking forward to a fantastic Conservancy Currents fun-filled summer - stay tuned for even more opportunities to get involved and get outside.
Conservancy Currents Volunteer Day! Michael Payton
