Community Forum and Screening of Jon Bowermaster Films And New 3-D Simulation of Anchorages and Crude Oil Transport on the Hudson River

Event Date:

Saturday, January 14, 2017 –

11:00am to 12:30pm

Reserve your seat at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck for a community forum and screening of three short films in acclaimed filmmaker Jon Bowermaster’s Hudson River at Risk series and a new Scenic Hudson 3D video simulation of barge anchorages proposed for the Hudson River. The proposed Hudson River anchorages would increase the risk of spills of volatile crude oil and other hazardous materials, threaten the Hudson Valley’s scenic splendor, and damage irreplaceable aquatic habitats.

Scenic Hudson encourages everyone to join us after the films for a Q&A session with President Ned Sullivan, Director of Environmental Advocacy Hayley Carlock and Director of Public Policy and Special Projects Andy Bicking. They and Jon Bowermaster will discuss the films and the regional threat the anchorages pose to the Hudson Valley. Take collective action against this proposal and prevent the Hudson River from becoming a parking lot for crude oil barges and a super-highway for fossil fuels!
