For each threat the Hudson River has faced, there’s always been a proportional force working to protect it. A cast of characters ranging from sailors to farmers to citizen-scientists have emerged as new heroes, tirelessly defending ‘America’s First River.’
Join Jon Bowermaster, noted oceans expert, award-winning artist, author, filmmaker, and adventurer, as he talks about using cinematography to promote conservation of nature. This program will include a screening of three new films from Jon’s Hope on the Hudson series (www.hudsonriverstories.com): Source to Sea, Growing with the Grain, and Undamming the Hudson River.
