On Thursday, June 23rd HOTH had its first official interactions with the community at the Fort Edward Canal Street Marketplace. We successfully distributed over 50 brochures to community members and were able to have some great conversations about what HOTH is and how it works to maintain the health of the river and our quality of life. We receive a lot of positive feedback and words of gratitude for our efforts thus far in addition to some really great questions. Kids stopped by too, gathering coloring sheets, connect the dots, and seek and find activities about animals that live in and around the Hudson River. All in all it was a great success and we look forward to our next event in the near future. Thank you to everyone who participated in making this day happen.
