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 2012, we more than doubled, to 44, the number of events held in recognition of Hudson River Day. Riverkeeper partners were a huge part of that success, organizing about a dozen free and discounted paddles, sails and other recreational events, and sending volunteers into 10 river communities to educate the public about water quality. It was so successful that in 2013, the celebration is expanding from a single day to an entire weekend. (Hence, the name change to Hudson River Days.)

If you are part of a club or organization with ties to the Hudson River, we need you. What will your organization do to mark Hudson River Days 2013? Contact Dan Shapley at [email protected] or 914-478-4501 x226.

The Hudson River Days 2013 Steering Committee includes Clearwater, the NYSDEC through the Hudson River Estuary Program, Hudson Valley Tourism, the Hudson River Boat and Yacht Club Association, Hudson Valley Marine Trades Association, the Hudson River Valley Greenway, the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and Riverkeeper.

Together, let’s make Hudson River Days 2013 the most successful yet!
