After the film screening join in the conversation as we discuss discuss the web of life that depends on the Hudson River and how we can protect the ecosystem.

Food and beverage provided by Sloop Brewing @ The Factory.

Panelists to be announced shortly.

Tickets $10 in advance / $15 at the door.

Panelists for this conversation include...

George Jackman, PhD, Habitat Restoration Manager, Riverkeeper

George is a retired NYPD police lieutenant turned aquatic ecologist. An experienced, dynamic environmental activist with a strong record of achievement, George is working on dam removals in the Hudson River Estuary, which are considered priority barriers to migratory fish, to expand critical habitat for these fishes. He will help Riverkeeper contribute to the restoration of natural habitat for fish, amphibians and other species in the Hudson River Estuary affected by dams and artificial barriers, so aquatic species can migrate to habitats they need to survive, reproduce and thrive. George conducts planning, outreach, fundraising, communications, and advocacy to promote fish passage and mitigate the damaging effects of barriers.

About Riverkeeper

For more than 50 years, Riverkeeper has fought to bring the Hudson River back from the brink, taking on polluters, advocating for clean water legislation, and protecting drinking water for millions of New Yorkers. Now, we turn our sights to the future and the challenge of restoring A Living River. Riverkeeper is a member-supported watchdog organization dedicated to defending the ecological integrity of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and to safeguarding the drinking water of 9 million New York City and Hudson Valley residents. Our vision is a Hudson River teeming with life, flowing with clean, swimmable waters from end to end, and healthy, abundant drinking water for all New Yorkers.
