Environmental and Urban Studies Program presents
A Hudson River Journey: 1609-2109
A Riverkeeper Traveling Exhibit
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 – Friday, March 29, 2013
Riverkeeper developed this exhibit in 2009 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage up the Hudson River. It contains original artwork, historic artifacts, maps and digital media. “A Hudson River Journey,” tells the history of stewardship inspired by the Hudson River, and the challenges and opportunities facing today’s river stewards. The panels tell the important story of the Hudson River from six distinct regions of the river (NY Harbor to Troy), and for three time periods: pre-contact (1609 and before), current era (industrial revolution to present day), and the future (2010 to 2109).
There will be a Riverkeeper presentation on March 5 a 11:50 AM as part of the EUS colloquium. The exhibit will be open to the public for the month of March.
