What We Do

The Saw Kill Watershed Community was formed in 2015 to unite area residents who are interested in protecting their water by maintaining the health of the Saw Kill and its watershed— for clean drinking water, flood protection, water supply, recreation, and ecological resources. The  group includes residents, farmers, scientists, students, educators, sportsmen, historians, conservationists, municipal leaders.

With support from Bard College, the group is also affiliated with the Bard Community Science Lab and participates in monthly collection of water samples from the Saw Kill. SKWC maintains a close relationship with the Hudson River Watershed Alliance and our members regularly participate in Alliance workshops and conferences.

Membership in the SKWC is open to all! (See the Get Involved section below.)
