and I have had a long term involvement with the environment and the American
landscape. In addition to documenting the Love Canal disaster, upon our
return to Yaddo, the GE South Glens Falls/Hudson River PCB situation was breaking
and a life-long concern was established. I learned to sail with Pete Seeger's
Clearwater movement, sailing on the Sojourner Truth out of Hastings, N.Y.,
where I assisted in the development of the Hudson River Photography Annual
- training the volunteers, obtaining support funding for the exhibition prizes
and installing/curating for its first four years. This exhibition, moved each
year up/down the river corridor like the estuary's waters, was open free to
all, including children, with prizes in numerous categories. Getting people
down to the River, sailing on it at sunset under the Palisades and watching
it become cleaner each year is something I will always hold dear.
These links will take you to an overview of our environmental activities including newspaper coverage of a related Bronx River Restoration Project
Miracle on the River was conceived to get
the communities along the River directly involved and finally bring something
positive to the major media channels regarding the Bronx.
To this day, people can now canoe or kayak this urban oasis.
It was covered extensively by TV, newspaper and radio networks:
NY Daily News Metro Page 6
Project UpLift - helicopter removal of stripped, abandoned vehicles dumped into the River and adjacent corridor
Miracle On The River Festival - A July 4th celebration to thank the community for its volunteer efforts in the completion of a long delayed river-side park and clean-up efforts

my thought one doesn’t replace the past,
one only adds a new link to it.
