Our mission is to protect, conserve and restore the water resources of the Hudson River Basin. 

Our vision is that the Hudson River watershed will become a national model for clean water, healthy habitat and environmentally sustainable economic development through the collaborative efforts of a diverse array of stakeholders.

We are an alliance of groups and individuals throughout the Hudson River Watershed from Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks to and including New York Harbor. 

We serve as a collective voice for organizations working on watershed protection and restoration in the Hudson River Basin and its tributaries. 

We seek to build an educated water constituency through our outreach, education and networking activities. 

We partner with organizations and municipalities working on water resource and clean water protection and best practices for watershed planning and management.

2014 Video:

This video provides an overview of the Hudson River Watershed Alliance and our work throughout the Hudson River Watershed. In August 2014, the Hudson River Watershed Alliance and our partners - the NYS DEC Hudson River Estuary Program, the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and the Quassaick Creek Watershed Alliance - organized a sail on the Hudson River out of Newburgh, New York to celebrate water quality, watershed planning and community revitalization for the City of Newburgh. Over 40 people attended the event, including the Mayor of Newburgh, several City Council Members, and other community leaders and nonprofits from the region. This video shows various highlights from this Hudson River Sloop Clearwater sail, in addition to selected images from our partners at the Greater Stockport Creek Watershed Alliance.
