Assessing the River

Plan sets goals for 2050

A coalition called Partners Restoring the Hudson has released a plan to “revitalize the Hudson River” by 2050 in preparation for rising sea levels and more frequent and severe storms caused by climate change.

The coalition includes the Beacon Institute, the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Dutchess County, Clearwater, Riverkeeper, Scenic Hudson and other environmental groups, as well as the Putnam and Dutchess county planning departments. The plan was paid for with state grants and a matching grant from the Nature Conservancy. See
