FALL LECTURE SERIES: Hudson River Water Quality
Ferry Sloops’ 2015 Fall Lecture Series kicks-off on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 7:30pm, with “Hudson River Water Quality: Moving from Monitoring to Action” presented by Dan Shapley of Riverkeeper and Ossining High School students.
Come learn about the results of water quality monitoring projects conducted by Riverkeeper and its partners, including Ossining High School, where students and teachers are sampling the beach at Engel Waterfront Park in Ossining. The audience will learn about results that can inform decision-making about when and where to swim, as well as actions that we can take to improve water quality.
Riverkeeper is a member-supported watchdog organization dedicated to defending the Hudson River and its tributaries and protecting the drinking water supply of nine million New York City and Hudson Valley residents.
For nearly 50 years Riverkeeper has been New York’s clean water advocate. We have helped to establish globally recognized standards for waterway and watershed protection and serve as the model and mentor for the growing Waterkeeper movement that includes nearly 200 Keeper programs across the country and around the globe.
Join us in Ossining at the Shattemuc Yacht Club, host for the Ferry Sloops “Music & Lecture” series.
Admission is FREE and open to the public. Come with a dish to share at 6:30PM and enjoy a potluck dinner or arrive a little before 7:30PM for the presentation. No reservations needed (seating will be first-come, first-served), and will be about an hour long, followed by a question-and-answer period.
