Join the Sustainability Office and Sustainable Saratoga for a screening of The Hudson: A River at Risk in Emerson Auditorium. A panel discussion will follow with Jon Bowermaster, filmmaker, and Kurt Smemo, Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies and Sciences Program. About the film:The Hudson River, like many waterways around the world, has long been treated like an in nite waste barrel, a dumping ground for toxic chemicals, hazardous waste and trash. But for the past fifty years an amazing collection of environmental groups – Riverkeeper, Scenic Hudson, Clearwater and many more – have worked to revive the Hudson and the beautiful Valley that surrounds it. These accomplishments remind us what a resilient resource the river is. The expanding web series, ‘The Hudson, A River At Risk,’ reports on a handful of serious and growing threats to the river. Meet some of the more interesting characters who have committed their lives to preserving the Hudson River and learn what you can do to make a difference.
