When Alyson and Garrett wanted a dramatic setting for their save-the-date photos, we headed to the Hudson River. The loving couple danced across the waterfront and into the sunset! Then, they danced some more... .

SUNDAY 10/13 Noon-2pm: What's this? This is trash that's about to roll through Kingston as a giant plastic ball. The @sunynewpaltz Department of Art students prepared this plastic (donated by Ulster County Resource and Recovery Agency) to create a massive ball for a "Hasbrouck Sewershed" tour as part of the O+ Festival in Kingston. Tour participants will roll the giant plastic ball as we trace the route of the Kingston's largest remaining sewer overflow system, untangling the intersection of waste, water and history, and the positive steps Kingston's Government is taking to address it. This project is a collaboration between UCRRA, SUNY NP Art Department, Riverkeeper, and the Hudson River Watershed Alliance. Meet us at Broadway & Foxhall Ave. #hudsonriver #riverkeeper #plasticpollution #newpaltz #opositivefest @opositivefest

Throwback to summer on the Hudson River & the magical disappearing boat. I am certainly not a sailor - definitely landlubber - but it was fun helping set up the stage and clean up Bannermans Island for the tour season. Heading back soon to close the tours for the upcoming winter. #stormkingmountain #stormkingny #hudsonriver #hudsonhighlands #riverkeeper #nystateparks #iloveny #summer2019 #ontheriver #goeast #easternmntn #yesny #nyphotography #hudsonvalleyphotography #hvbest #findwhatyouloveny #newyorkstate #hudsonvalleylife

Here is a picture of the swimming pool that was built in 1929 at Indian Point Park. It was 100 x 150 feet and must have been a nice way to cool off for the many visitors brought there by steamboats from NYC. By 1952, the park had over 50 concessions, five ball fields, beer halls, a roller skating rink, a dance hall, an outdoor arena, miniature golf, a driving range, and countless amusement rides. In 1954, the property was sold to Con Ed. Let’s see what comes next. Come check out my painting on Oct. 19th from 1-4pm at 901 South St. in Peekskill. Proceeds from the sale will go to @riverkeeper. Thanks to “Lost Amusement Parks of the Hudson Valley” for the info.

We think it is important to use as much local material when maintaining or improving our river beats. Minimising unnecessary transport cost and maximising the use of our natural resources. Yesterday we were trying out our new milling rig. We will be cutting planking out of dead ash trees for repairs to bridges and replacement benches. #fishingbreaks #riverkeeper

It's time for another... People of Hashtag #Peekskill !⠀ ⠀ If you've spent any time in Peekskill, chances are you've encountered Andrew Barthelmes ( @andrewbarthelmes ). Not necessarily the man (although he's been a presence in town since he was born here in 1974) -- but his art, which graces some of Peekskill's most popular establishments. Most of his paintings, like those found at Peekskill Coffee House and BeanRunner Cafe, seek to capture the quiet moments of modern life in the Hudson Valley. His work for Fin & Brew, depicting a Kraken attacking Henry Hudson's Half Moon, reveals a darkly humorous edge to the art and the artist.⠀ ⠀ That edge is on full display with Andrew's massive and imaginative oil painting entitled "Indian Summer" which is now up for auction, with proceeds from the sale going to support Riverkeeper ( @riverkeeper ). At first glance the bright colors and idyllic setting conjures feelings of nostalgic Hudson River summers of yore, but a closer look actually reveals a darkly fanciful vision of the future. In this future, Peekskill's atomic neighbor, the Indian Point nuclear power plant is shuttered has been retrofitted into an amusement park -- much like the one that used to draw visitors to Indian Point between 1923 and 1956, before the power plant was built. It's a clever mix of beauty, history and commentary on the environmental impact of life on the Hudson River.⠀ ⠀ If you love all this as much as we do, please follow Andrew, check out his artwork around town, and spread the word about his Indian Summer auction for Riverkeeper. Andrew is hosting an opening on Saturday, October 19 1-4pm at his studio at 901 South Street in Peekskill.

As the trout season comes to an end our River Keeper's thoughts shift from mowing, strimming and weed cutting to winter projects and more major maintenance tasks. Yesterday we started taking out some of the dead ash trees, ready to drop some large woody debris into the river, and taking out some of the fallen trees and branches that fell victim to the first storms. #fishingbreaks #riverkeeper #largewoodydebris

Team Riverkeeper removed over 700 pounds of aquatic litter near Clark Spring Branch and Wilson Morgan Lake. Most of the litter found is some form of plastic. . Scientists have found that the Tennessee River is polluted by as many as 16,000 to 18,000 microplastic particles per cubic meter.  This pollution occurs when larger plastics breakdown over time. Experts think that they can last for hundreds of years, and toxicity can ‘biomagnify’ as microplastics build up in the food chain. There is no easy solution to this problem. We do know that preventing plastics from entering waterways is an obvious solution and it is easier to remove garbage from the shorelines and shallow water of creeks and rivers. #tennesseeriver #riverkeeper #waterkeeper #plastic #microplastics

Really? The Yurok Tribe in nw California have declared that the Klamath River has the “rights of personhood” because low water flows have led to decreased salmon and more disease in salmon. Look, at Zigup we believe that native Americans got shafted more than any other group in the country - they lost their entire country. However, giving a river personhood “rights” while denying unborn humans ANY rights is absurd. #blm , #abortion , #abortolegal 💚, #abortionrights , #abortionismurder , #kanyewest , #michelleobama , #arianagrande , #justinbieber , #sarahsilverman , #nancypelosi , #naral , #prolife , #prochoice , #now , #riverkeeper , #blacklivesmatter , #oprah , #robertdinero , #costsofabortion , #metoo , #womensrights

🏡 A Green House 👩🏻‍🌾👨🏻‍🌾 Some “routine maintenance” required before further use! 😉 ✅ In the fun/funny category of things observed on one of my flights for the @broadriverkeeper / @southwings . 🔥Hope everybody here can stay cool the next 2 days with the 97 degree temps (36 Celsius). Seems like this is the hottest it’s been all year. And it’s been a hot one...

CAUTION: This post contains math...🤓 The September tally is in! I spent 40 hours over the last 30 days hauling nearly 70 cubic feet of trash from the river! Basically, that is the same amount of space that is occupied by an ice cooler. This means, that since May 2019, my grand total collected is approximately 240 cubic feet (or 8.9 cubic yards)...yep, that amount of trash would overflow an 8-yard dumpster! As for the cigarillo tips, I collected 267 of those bad boys in September...which puts my two-month total at 428! #september #doyourpart #math #swipeleft for #litter

October 1st! My favourite month, not because its my birthday month but because its the month that the pheasant comes into season. Although the partridge shooting is in full swing I class October as the first true month of the lowland game shooting season so unfortunately you lot will have to put up with less fish pictures and more of these until February comes around! - Roll on the next four months of crisp mornings, gin, good food, high pheasants, happy spaniels, side by sides and days out with the family! - #riverkeeper #gameshooting #pheasant #partridge #duck #grouse #sidebyside #overunder #12gauge #highpheasant #ukshooting #eley #gamebore #blacksabel #workingdogs #gundogs #outdoors #tweed #gin #beating #onpeg #britishshooting #shotgun
