WaveMaker Awards Benefit

Wednesday, June 5, 2024
6:00-8:30 PM
The Falcon, 1348 Rte 9W, Marlboro, NY

Join the Hudson River Watershed Alliance for our annual celebration of the Watershed WaveMaker awardees and the outstanding efforts of all watershed volunteers. We’ll gather along the waterfalls of the Lattintown Creek with appetizers, drinks, and live music. The event will also feature a panel discussion with this year’s Watershed WaveMaker awardees.

The WaveMaker Awards Benefit is an opportunity to celebrate our WaveMaker awardees, the vast network of rivers and streams that flow to the Hudson River, and the communities that work to protect them. These rivers, streams, and communities are all part of the Hudson River watershed. We’re also looking forward to celebrating the opening of our organization’s first office and meeting space in Kingston.

Congratulations to the 2024 Watershed WaveMakers!

Each year, the Hudson River Watershed Alliance recognizes awardees from a variety of backgrounds to represent the diversity of watershed work in the region. This year, we’re honoring the work of:

Sergei Krasikov from Beacon: in recognition of Sergei’s leadership in creating an emerging watershed group, the Fishkill Creek Watershed Alliance, inclusive approach to organizing and sharing information, and volunteer work in Beacon.

John Ladd from Ossining: in recognition of John’s mentorship of Ossining High School students through the science research program, volunteer work with the Town of Ossining Environmental Advisory Committee, and use of mapping tools to better understand and protect our waters.

Rockland Conservation & Service Corps from Rockland County: in recognition of the program’s unique approach to providing opportunities for young people to gain experience in the environmental field and make meaningful contributions to improve the Hudson River and its watershed.

Arm of the Sea Theater from Saugerties: in recognition of innovative watershed storytelling, especially to engage diverse audiences and share science in creative and accessible ways, along with their new Tidewater Center on the Esopus Creek.
