Source to Sea and Undamming the Hudson River Screening in Schenectady

When:
January 3, 2020

Join Riverkeeper and ECOS in partnership with the First Reformed Church of Schenectady, Schoharie River Center, The Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition, Mohawk Watershed Alliance, Great Flats Brewing Company and Schenectady County Environmental Advisory Committee for a screening and panel discussion of two short films by National Geographic filmmaker Jon Bowermaster: “Source to Sea” and “Undamming the Hudson River.”  The screening will take place on Thursday, March 5 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the First Reformed Church of Schenectady (in Covenant Hall) located at the corner of Union and North Church Street, Schenectady NY. Parking for cars available in the church lot on N. Church; readily accessible entrance across from parking.

Source To Sea documents the efforts by Riverkeeper and its partner organizations to answer the proverbial question, “How’s the water?” The film shows how some 200 volunteer citizen scientists collect samples from the Hudson River and its tributaries, and how the cleaned-up river is being used by more and more, by swimmers, beer-makers, and communities that depend on it for drinking water.

Undamming the Hudson River showcases Riverkeeper’s efforts to restore natural habitat by eliminating obsolete dams throughout the Hudson River Estuary. 

A panel discussion with Bowermaster, Dan Shapley, Riverkeeper’s Water Quality Program Director, and Dr. John Garver, Professor of Geology and Director of Environmental Services and founder of the Mohawk Watershed Alliance, will follow the screening. 

The event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Rebecca Martin, Campaign Manager of the Water Quality Program at Riverkeeper rmartin@riverkeeper.org or call 845/750-7295
