Rescuing the River: ​50 Years of Environmental Activism on the Hudson

Rescuing the River: ​50 Years of Environmental Activism on the Hudson
Saturday, April 20, 2019 to Thursday, December 31, 2020

The arrival of 2019 heralds some very important anniversaries: Hudson River Sloop CLEARWATER was launched and the National Environmental Policy Act passed in 1969, and Pete Seeger was born in 1919. To commemorate these milestones, the Hudson River Maritime Museum will honor the work of the many organizations throughout the Hudson Valley whose mission is to clean and protect the Hudson River.

Our 2019 exhibit, “Rescuing the River: 50 Years of Environmental Activism on the Hudson Presented by Bank of America” seeks to situate the important work of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Riverkeeper Inc., and Scenic Hudson in their proper historical and national context with other regional efforts. For the first time, the museum will include interactive kiosks to feature additional exhibit materials including short films.
