Hudson River on the Rise, Event Announcement


April 27, 2017, 9am-4pm


Henry A. Wallace Center, FDR Presidential Library, Hyde Park, NY


Join us for a day-long conference to advance resiliency planning for the Hudson Estuary’s unique natural and community resources in an age of sea-level rise.  All Hudson Estuary riverfront stakeholders—including municipal officials, community leaders, landowners, planners, resource managers, regulators, developers and private sector professionals—are invited to hear speakers with expertise in science, planning and design, resource management, and decision-making process discuss the natural history of the river; emerging issues and opportunities that will shape future waterfront planning; decision-making roles and shoreline jurisdictions; and innovative case studies from Hudson River communities.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn about exciting efforts along the Hudson and available resources, envision future projects in their own communities, and network with each other and explore partnerships to pursue their own waterfront resiliency goals.  Feel free to download this flyer to help pass the information along.

Keynote speaker: Pippa Brashear, Director of Planning and Resilience, SCAPE (NYC-based landscape architecture and urban design studio)
