Meet Our May VI(R)P, Rob Buchanan!
RP is pleased to announce our May VI(R)P, Rob Buchanan! Join Renaissance Person at The River Project on Pier 40 on May 30th to pick up some skills to master the NYC waterways! Your ticket includes: all presentations, wine and beer, materials to build a cardstock model boat, a sea life meet and greet, and a chance to compete for prizes.
Rob works for the Billion Oyster Project, a non-profit focused on the environmental restoration of the harbor and estuary, and for the New York Harbor School, a maritime-themed public high school on Governors Island. He is a longtime harbor rower and a co-founder of the New York City Water Trail Association, a group of human-powered boaters whose mission is to expand safe public access to the urban waterways. Over the past 15 years, he's organized more than 20 team boatbuilding projects with students and community volunteers.
Welcome to Renaissance Person, Rob!
