The event will be held rain or shine; attendees should bring lawn chairs. For directions go to nhyc1869.com. The suggested donation is $5+ per person. For Information call 845-214-0595.
Scenic Hudson is helping communities plan for waterfront resilience in the face of changing climate conditions including sea-level rise. Initiatives such as the Clean Water Act and efforts by Scenic Hudson and other environmental organizations have vastly improved the water quality in the Hudson River over the past 30 to 40 years.
Riverfronts no longer support industrial activity as they did in the 19th and early 20th centuries. As a result, communities are once again embracing the Hudson as the face they present to the world. All of the donations and funds received in connection with the concert will go to support Scenic Hudson.
