EUS Initiates New Watershed Community Group

Awarded Hudson River Estuary Program Grant to study and protect the Saw Kill
EUS Initiates New Watershed Community Group
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently awarded Bard one of its Hudson River Estuary Program Grants to support the development of a science-based community stewardship group called the Saw Kill Watershed Community. The group brings together Bard faculty and staff and local community members. EUS professor Eli Dueker led the grant-writing team, and Dr. Dueker, EUS Executive Administrator Tom O’Dowd, and Red Hook community member Karen Schneller-McDonald form the interim coordination team.
 
The Saw Kill Watershed Community works together to study, protect, and teach others about our local creek and its watershed. Their draft mission is “building community through hands-on science, education, advocacy, to protect the Saw Kill watershed and its ecological, recreational, and historical resources." This project utilizes and connects scientific research to inform and raise community stewardship of the watershed. Starting in January of 2016 the group will hold monthly “community conversations” to stay on top of local watershed issues and take actions.

Our Mission

Both biogeophysical systems and human societies (cultures, economies, political regimes) are nested complex systems involving numerous interactions. Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) is a transdisciplinary program that examines the interdependence of human societies and the physical environment. The program strives to ensure that majors have a solid background in the physical sciences, the humanities, and economics and policy--and understand what sustainability means in the real world. We aim to enhance students' understanding of the complexities of environmental and urban issues and their awareness of interrelationships between built and "natural" environments.
