Making a Difference: Children and Community Water Advocacy

Strawtown’s river art workshop at the “Hudson River Fish Count”.

Strawtown program for urban youth, in partnership with the Highlands Environmental Research Institute (HEnRI).

Strawtown’s “Water Flowing By” workshop was created for municipal planners, elected officials, community leaders, and citizen advocates to raise awareness and inspire actions for protecting and restoring the life-supporting systems in our waterways.

The Sparkill Creek is a favorite outdoor classroom site, but the creek is in trouble. Strawtown Director, Laurie Seeman, founded the Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance (, with the mission to develop practices and partnerships to help restore the creek. This video features the group’s water quality sampling program, in partnership with the Hudson Riverkeeper.
