Learn with George
Riverkeeper members are powering a movement to restore life to creeks and streams in the Hudson Valley by supporting our work to remove old, obsolete dams. In 2020, Riverkeeper plans to take down two dams in Westchester and Orange County.

On the Riverkeeper team, George Jackman leads the dam removal effort. He travels all over the Hudson Valley to find dams and their owners, and conducts planning, outreach, fundraising, and advocacy to promote fish passage and mitigate the damaging effects of dams throughout the Hudson Valley.

Learn more about George's work and how you can join the dam movement at this live, virtual Q&A!

George Jackman, PhD
Senior Habitat Restoration Manager @Riverkeeper
George is a retired NYPD police lieutenant turned aquatic ecologist. An experienced, dynamic environmental activist with a strong record of achievement, George is working on dam removals in the Hudson River Estuary, which are considered priority barriers to migratory fish, to expand critical habitat for these fishes. He will help Riverkeeper contribute to the restoration of natural habitat for fish, amphibians and other species in the Hudson River Estuary affected by dams and artificial barriers, so aquatic species can migrate to habitats they need to survive, reproduce and thrive. George conducts planning, outreach, fundraising, communications, and advocacy to promote fish passage and mitigate the damaging effects of barriers.
