Friday, we gathered together at the Riverport Wooden Boat School at the Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston to thank those who have partnered with Riverkeeper to gather samples from the Mohawk, Roe Jan, Catskill, Rondout, Wallkill and Saw Kill. Dozens of individuals came together to talk, break bread and share a drink courtesy of von Trapp Brewing.
