The Hudson Area Library is joining forces with three other libraries: Claverack Free Library, Philmont Public Library, and Roeliff-Jansen Community Library, to present two programs on our local river: Hudson River Estuary Basics, for adults and Eels! A Hudson River Fish & How We Can Save  Them, a special Story Hour for children, ages 2-7

DATES/TIME:
Hudson River Estuary Basics: Wednesday, September 9, 6-7:30pm
Eels! A Hudson River Fish & How We Can Save Them: Friday, September 11, 10-11am.

REGISTRATION: To register for either or both programs email programs@hudsonarealibrary.org or call 518-828-1792 x101.

In Hudson River Estuary Basics adults can learn about the tides, saltwater and freshwater, and geography of the Hudson River; a tidal river with maritime and river environments that begins in the Adirondacks at Lake Tear of Clouds and eventually drains into the Atlantic Ocean at New York Harbor. There will be a question and answer period after Aidan’s talk. To access this event via Zoom, click here.

As a special Story Hour for the four libraries in Eels! A Hudson River Fish & How We Can Save Them Aidan will discuss the life cycle and migration of eels and how children can be citizen scientists in observing eels and helping their chances of survival in our river.
