Join the Hudson River Watershed Alliance for the December edition of their Mid-Hudson Watershed Breakfast Lecture Series. The December breakfast will focus on keeping Asian Carp out of the Hudson River and will feature a talk by Stuart Findlay, Ph.D., Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies.

Asian Carp have invaded many US waterways but are not yet present in the Hudson River or its tributaries. Asian Carp displaces native fishes by outcompeting them for food and space. Extensive control measures have been attempted on other American waterways with varying degrees of success. Protective measures are in place for the Hudson River, but the threat remains significant and various critical species throughout our Hudson River tributary network would be affected. Stuart Findlay has been examining our exposure locally to Asian Carp and will speak about likely effects if the invader arrives, and begin a discussion of possible additional options for prevention.

The diner expects each attendee to make a $5 minimum food or beverage purchase. This presentation is part of HRWA’s 2019-20 breakfast speaker season. Please feel free to circulate this notice.

RSVP required to Russell Urban-Mead, so diner staff can be prepared.

WINTER BAD WEATHER POLICY: HRWA breakfasts are canceled only if the New Paltz Central School District (the nearest school district to the diner) has either a weather delay or cancellation. We meet if school opens on time. So please call the school district or visit to learn of delays or cancellations.

Keep the Hudson River flowing!
