"Rescuing the River: 50 Years of Environmental Activism on the Hudson," presented by Bank of America, traces the role of the Hudson River in the American environmental movement and the influence of individuals and organizations like Scenic Hudson, Riverkeeper, Clearwater, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in cleaning up the Hudson River.

Using primary sources like photographs and paintings, newspaper articles, ephemera, and oral histories, this exhibit provides a comprehensive and river-wide look at environmentalism from the 19th century forward, with special emphasis on the 1960s-90s.
