So little fresh water on our planet is available to use yet everything we do in our watershed can impact our waterbodies. Find out more about the water quality of our rivers and the life that lives within it. Discover what simple things you can do to help keep our rivers and lakes healthy. Presented by Alison Dixon, HVA’s Berkshire Outreach Manager.
Refreshments served before and after lecture
President and Hudson Riverkeeper Paul Gallay will give a special presentation during The River Art Project exhibition on Saturday, June 17th at 4:00 pm. Using examples from Riverkeeper’s current work and recent clean water victories, Paul will discuss how people-driven advocacy and grass roots efforts can have a “trickle up” effect in gaining government support to protect our waterways and drinking water. After the talk, there will be time for questions from the audience and refreshments will be served.
