Gallay and the Riverkeeper team work to protect the Hudson River and the drinking water supplies for nine million New Yorkers. An attorney and educator, Gallay has dedicated himself to the environmental movement since 1987, when he left the private practice of law and went to work for the New York State Attorney General. In 1990, he began a ten-year stint at New York’’s Department of Environmental Conservation, where he brought hundreds of corporate and government polluters to justice.

This class session will consider the use of advocacy, science, the law, and sustainable infrastructure design in safeguarding or restoring watersheds and estuaries.
