The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program will host a Hudson River Summit on Thursday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at The Grandview, overlooking the Hudson in Poughkeepsie. The conference is co-sponsored by Historic Hudson River Towns. Department of Environmental Conservation CommissionerJoe Martens will deliver opening remarks.
The Hudson River Summit will focus on building successful collaborations to implement the 2015-2020 Hudson River Estuary Program Action Agenda, a conservation and restoration plan that guides the work of the Estuary Program and its partners. The Action Agenda defines the challenges we face and identifies desired conditions for the estuary and its watershed now and into the future. The Action Agenda charts a course to provide six key benefits: clean water; resilient communities; vital estuary ecosystem; estuary fish, wildlife, & habitats; natural scenery; as well as education, river access, recreation and inspiration.
Registration for the conference, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch, is $35. Student registration is $20. The registration deadline is April 2, 2015.
We encourage you to register early as space is limited. We hope to see you there!
