The Mission of the Wallkill River Watershed Alliance
The Wallkill River Watershed Alliance exists to restore the ecological health of the Wallkill River and its watershed. We want a Wallkill one can swim in, a Wallkill one can fish, and a Wallkill free of pollution.

Background on the Alliance
Over the course of the winter and spring of 2015, a small group of people met to plan an event targeted to draw attention to the Wallkill River. Representing in part the Village of New Paltz, Hudson River Estuary Program, Riverkeeper, Mohonk Consultations and SUNY New Paltz, the organizing committee hosted “The Future of the Wallkill” on April 4th, 2015. At the followup meeting on June 4th, a group of concerned citizens agreed to form a permanent organization dedicated to restoring the Wallkill watershed, founding the Wallkill River Watershed Alliance.
