The New York Historical Society’s upcoming exhibit, Hudson Rising, opens on Friday, March 1st. The exhibit explores 200 years of ecological change and environmental activism along the Hudson River, reflecting on how the river has been impacted by communities, and how the river has shaped surrounding industrial development, commerce, tourism, and environmental awareness. SCAPE’s Living Breakwaters is featured as a method of restoring and re-engineering the river to respond to climate change. The exhibition opens on Friday, and will remain open until August 4th.
