The Riverkeeper's traveling exhibit, "A Hudson River Journey," will be on view at Bard College through March 29.

Developed in 2009 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage up the river, the exhibit tells the history of the journey as well as the challenges for today through original artwork, historic artifacts, maps and digital media. The story is told from the perspective of six distinct regions from New York City to Troy, and three time periods: pre-contact, current era and the future.
