Mid-Hudson News reports that Bard College is getting $69,886 from the Hudson River Foundation for Science and Environmental Research, Inc., a New York not-for-profit, for a two-year project to update and improve water quality datasets. Elias Dueker, associate professor of environmental and urban studies, and Gabriel Perron, associate professor of biology, are analyzing microbiological micropollution samples and comparing those results with historical water quality data from the Saw Kill tributary from the mid ’70s to early ’80s, and from 2015 to present. Deuker said, “This partnership with Hudson River Foundation allows the Bard Center for Environmental Science and Humanities to strengthen its commitment to using science as a tool for environmental and social change.... We hope this unique effort to utilize and elevate community-fueled science will serve as a model for contemporary and meaningful approaches to creating climate resilient communities in the Hudson Valley.” Read the full story at Mid-Hudson News.
