News from the Hudson River Estuary Program

A smiling boy drinks a glass of water.DEC has released the 2021-2025 Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda, a conservation and restoration blueprint that guides the work of the Estuary Program and its partners. The Action Agenda expresses a shared vision for the region, as defined by diverse groups of people who live and work along the Hudson River and in its valley. The Estuary Program develops the essential actions necessary to achieve that vision; implementation of the Action Agenda relies on partnerships. Federal and state agencies, as well as local municipalities, nonprofits, academic and scientific institutions, businesses, landowners, and dedicated volunteers all play a role.

The 2021 - 2025 Action Agenda (PDF) is organized around the key benefits that result from a strong and vibrant estuary ecosystem and is grouped into three themes: a vital river ecosystem; a thriving and resilient watershed; and people living well with nature.

The Hudson River Estuary Program helps people enjoy, protect, and revitalize the Hudson River and its valley. Created in 1987 through the Hudson River Estuary Management Act, the program focuses on the tidal Hudson and adjacent watershed from the federal dam at Troy to the Verrazano Narrows in New York City, including upper New York-New Jersey Harbor.
