Hudson Valley Stream Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit that works in aquatic ecology, water-related infrastructure, environmental education and outreach. We’ve been around since 2006 and are supported by NY State and foundation grants. Our overriding goal is to protect and restore streams and rivers both for their ecological function and to help humans sustainably get the most out of interacting with nature; economically and recreationally. We are currently working on two dam removal projects in New York State and the design and permitting for a deep water pier into the Hudson River. Mission : To restore streams and their ecosystem services to their communities and beyond. Our target partners are municipalities who want to clean up streams for compliance and recreation but don’t have the funding. We get the funding with minimal municipal contribution.
