Presentation About Research on Nature and Aquatic Life in Poughkeepsie

The Environmental Cooperative presents results from Poughkeepsie's Natural Resources Inventory and the Fall Kill AquaBlitz—a community event that explored the diverse yet under-appreciated aquatic life in Poughkeepsie’s Fall Kill.  Maps and photos will be on display, with presentations and time for community conversation (and snacks)!  Jen Rubbo from the Environmental Cooperative and Gretchen Stevens from Hudsonia Ltd. will present on results from the Poughkeepsie Natural Resources Inventory.  Video and audio from the Fall Kill AquaBlitz: Humans of the Fall Kill project will also be on display.

The exhibition, which illuminates recent research and information about the natural spaces that contribute towards making Poughkeepsie the robust city that it is, will take place on February 19, 2019 at 5:30pm in the Environmental Cooperative at the Vassar Barns.

Sponsored by the Environmental Cooperative at the Vassar Barns and the Dean of Strategic Planning and Academic Resources.
