Review for Hackensack Riverkeeper, Inc., Hackensack, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I used to work for Hackensack Riverkeeper until 2006, but have stayed informed of their exploits through their newsletters and emails. Their tenacity and connection to the local communities they serve was and still is second to none. They provide education and advocacy practically every day of the year at all levels, from elementary schools all the way up to the upper levels of government. They have brought back recreational opportunities that hadn't existed for 50 years, including paddling and guided boat tours. Through their outreach, diverse stakeholders now speak collegially to protect and restore degraded systems. And they have saved or provided the impetus to save endangered tracts and species throughout the New Jersey Meadowlands and entire watershed. The water is now clean enough (most of the time) that certain species have re-entered the estuary, and some are even safe to eat.
