Join Hudson Valley Green Drinks for their December gathering focused on restoring biodiversity and abundance – undamming the Hudson River.

Participate in a discussion about the restoration of aquatic life to the Hudson River by ridding the Hudson River tributaries of obsolete dams that no longer serve a sustainable purpose and function only as impediments for the river’s fish by preventing migratory fish from reaching critical habitats or suppressing the genetic diversity of resident fish through limited mobility. The guest speaker will be Dr. George Jackman, Habitat Restoration Manager at Riverkeeper, who is working throughout the estuary to eliminate barriers whenever possible, improve fish passage, and restore the resiliency of the river and its natural functions. George will share thoughts, stories, and information about the importance of removing unused dams and replenishing the Hudson River’s native fish populations.
