Date: May 23rd, 2017 

Time: 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Location: Vanderbilt Hall, New York University School of Law (40 Washington Square South New York, NY 10012)


The New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program is collaborating with the Hudson River Estuary Program to present a conference celebrating the 30 year anniversary of both programs. Please join us for a full day discussion of how far we have come and the challenges and opportunities that await us in the future.

This event, hosted by the NYU Wallerstein Collaborative for Urban Environmental Education, will bring together 200 officials from local, state and federal government, non-profit advocates, utilities, scientists and private consultants, to review current priorities with a particular emphasis on fostering upriver/downriver connections, addressing climate change and infrastructure challenges, and linking estuary health with community well-being.
