The Lower Hudson Urban Rivers Collaborative: Promoting Stewardship through Community Science and Engagement

By investigating water quality with community scientists we will have a better understanding of the severity and sources of pollution and a basis for future remediation in four of our most highly-urbanized watersheds. We will create an educated grassroots network by directly engaging communities in hands-on science, trainings, local workshops, and a regional forum.
