Hudson River on the Rise: Waterfront Planning for Communities and Nature

Join Scenic Hudson for a day-long conference to advance resiliency planning for their unique natural and community resources in an age of sea-level rise due to climate change.

“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 will 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.”

The conference will take place at the Henry A. Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home in Hyde Park on April 27, 2017 from 9:00AM to 5:30PM.
