The 5th annual Hudson River Days celebration is set for July 20 and 21, 2013.
The mission of Hudson River Days is to bring public attention to the river’s scenery, ecology and recreational uses, as well as those people and organizations that promote environmental stewardship and restoration, public access and recreation.
In addition to festivals in New York City and Kingston, where Riverkeeper will have a presence, Riverkeeper has organized an “Open River Series” with businesses and clubs, to provide the public with a number of free or discounted river-based recreational and educational events. (A full list of Hudson River Days events, can be found at hudsonriverdaysny.org.)
