Festive Attire

A Healthy Hudson from Source to Sea. Clean, safe drinking water.

These two simple goals are the driving force behind all we do at Riverkeeper. Thanks to the passion, engagement and generous support of thousands of members and volunteers, we are closer than ever to turning these goals into reality.

The Fishermen’s Ball brings together Riverkeeper’s friends and partners to celebrate historic achievements and recognize the changemakers who helped make them happen. This year, we honor Patagonia for its unwavering commitment to clean water, climate action and the protection of wild places; Mary McNamara for her passionate advocacy for healthy waterways and local communities; and, Joe Boren for his leadership and vision as Chair of Riverkeeper’s Board of Directors from 2015-2018.
