How's the Water
and How Can We Improve It?
A Joint Presentation by Clearwater and Riverkeeper
The public is invited to join representatives from Clearwater's Green Cities Initiative and Riverkeeper's Patrol Boat Program for presentations about water quality in the Hudson River and its tributaries, and what we can do to improve it.
The Hudson River has long defined the character and quality of life in our communities. In recent decades the Hudson has enjoyed a revival with increasing numbers of people wanting to live near it and recreate in it. However, our management of the river has not kept pace with its quickly evolving new role as a popular recreational destination.
Because the cities of the Hudson River Valley drive regional economic development and have high concentration of diverse people and environmental concerns, Clearwater has developed the Green Cities Initiative. Clearwater will present its Green Cities programs, which include working with underserved communities in waterfront cities to include principles of sustainability - such as watershed protection, green infrastructure practices, environmental justice, and climate justice - into all phases of municipal and community planning.
This event is supported by a grant from the Westchester Community Foundation.
For more information, contact Victor Pierre Melendez, Green Cities Initiative Director, at Victor@Clearwater.org, or 845 265 8080 x 7144
