Riverkeeper invites the public to a free event to welcome Grandmother Carole, who is walking from the source of Muhheakantuck (the Hudson River) in the Adirondack Mountains to its mouth at New York Harbor. This is Grandmother Carole’s 9th Water is Life Walk, and the first for the Hudson. Her “healing walk for the Sacred Water” began June 3 and is to conclude July 2, when she delivers water gathered from the headwaters to New York Harbor as part of her mission to rebuild the human-to-water connection. The event will provide people the opportunity to hear Grandmother Carole’s stories, ask questions, and participate in a blending of the waters Unity Ceremony and will also feature two short films by National Geographic filmmaker Jon Bowermaster: Source to Sea, which explores how Riverkeeper’s Water Quality Program answers the question, “How’s the water?” and Undamming the Hudson, which showcases Riverkeeper’s efforts to restore natural habitat by eliminating obsolete dams throughout the Hudson River Estuary.

These are two key ways to restructure water rates to incentivize green infrastructure and water conservation, reduce overall capital and operating costs for DEP, help improve water quality and mitigate flooding.
