Meet Riverkeeper’s 2022 Hudson Hero: Jon Bowermaster
Join us for a fun and fascinating discussion with our favorite filmmaker, Jon Bowermaster!

Riverkeeper is proud to honor Jon Bowermaster with our 2022 Hudson Hero Award at our upcoming Summer Splash annual gala. A dedicated environmental activist and clean water advocate, Jon has focused his career and considerable talent in filmmaking on highlighting and raising awareness on global and local conservation.

Jon has worked with Riverkeeper and several Hudson Valley organizations to produce documentary films that raise awareness about the threats to the Hudson as well as showcase the stories of hope in our communities.
