Bard Water Lab
In December 2017, the Hudson River Watershed Alliance awarded Bard College a Watershed WaveMaker Award for its role in establishing the Saw Kill Watershed Community and the Bard Water Lab. This work is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Hudson River Foundation, the NYS Environmental Protection Fund (DEC HREP), the Bard College EUS Program, the Bard College Office of Sustainability, and the Red Hook Conservation Advisory Council.
The Saw Kill Watershed Community started its water-quality monitoring program in May 2016 and collects samples on a monthly basis from 14 sites along the Saw Kill. To learn more about the Saw Kill Watershed Community, visit their website.
