The Center for Research, Regional Education and Outreach at SUNY New Paltz will host Riverkeeper and the Department of Environmental Conservation for an evening presentation and discussion about regional water quality as part of Ulster County Creek Week. The presentation will be held at SUNY New Paltz in their Lecture Center, Room 108.

Learn about Riverkeeper’s work to identify and eliminate sources of sewage pollution in the Hudson River and its tributaries, including work on tributary creeks and rivers in Ulster County.

Emily Vail and Andrew Meyer of the DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program will discuss regional water quality, green infrastructure, and what you can do to help.

Creek Week is a project of the Ulster County Department of the Environment and the Ulster County Environmental Management Council. Riverkeeper, which works actively on projects in three major Ulster County tributaries and has a satellite office in the Hudson River Maritime Museum on the Rondout in Kingston, is an active collaborator. Riverkeeper’s citizen science project on the Wallkill River and Rondout Creek in 2012 is made possible by a grant from the UPS Foundation.

Directions to SUNY New Paltz as well as information about parking can be found here. Please note, a parking permit is NOT required on the date of the event.
