Her Hudson is a symposium of activities, demonstrations and speakers to educate girls in the New York City area about conservation of the Hudson River estuary and empower them through participation in environmental science and management. Girls and women serve as crucial resource-managers and educators for their families and communities, so we believe it is important to unleash their potential as environmental stewards.
Her Hudson aims to provide a platform for young women (ages 8-14) to collaborate with one another, evaluate the problems our city and estuary face and generate solutions that will benefit the Hudson River as well as the communities that rely on it. Interactive activity stations will be led by the New York Hall of Science, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, Riverkeeper, the River Project, and Hudson River Community Sailing.
Together, we can cultivate a more inclusive, conscientous citizenry that actively strives towards ensuring a healthy estuary and city for the present and future.
This event will begin at 1:00 PM in the McIntosh Student Room, 2nd floor of the Diana Center at Barnard College (3009 Broadway). Hope to see you there!
