Celebrate Riverkeeper's first half-century as New York's clean water advocate.
Riverkeeper Boat Captain John Lipscomb will share his deep knowledge of the Hudson River with television meteorologist Storm Field as we honor a 50-year history of efforts to protect the river and restore its health.
Lipscomb grew up in Irvington and Tarrytown,learning to swim and sail in the Hudson River. He has sailed as Captain aboard a number of 30' to 65' blue water sailing vessels, and completed three Trans Atlantic crossings and one Trans Pacific crossing.
A passionate advocate for the River and life in it, he patrols the Hudson from New York Harbor to Troy, logging 4,000 to 5,000 nautical miles a year on the 36-foot wooden vessel R. Ian Fletcher to identily and deter polluters, support science research and educate the public.
Our creative team has once again out done themselves. Our 10th year anniversary exhibit opened on
