A Riverkeeper Retrospective


The Hudson Valley is considered the birthplace of the modern American environmental movement. Riverkeeper was founded by one of those original activists, Robert H. Boyle, to protect the Hudson River from polluters. This organization advocates for the region through environmental litigation. Here are covers I've contributed to their newsletter over the years.

This issue addressed how General Electric's PCB pollutants were affecting the Hudson River.

This was part of a successful campaign pressuring GE to remove PCB pollutants from the Hudson.

The slogan "Think globally, act locally" is true.
Riverkeeper campaigns continue to hold polluters accountable,
and help protect this beautiful valley I call home.
