Watershed Map

The Hudson River spans more than 300 miles from its source in the Adirondacks down to where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. Its watershed spans vast territory in New York, and touches portions of Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.

The Mohawk River, nestled between the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains, is almost 150 miles along. As the largest tributary of the Hudson River, it comprises one-quarter of the larger Hudson River Basin.

As the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers meet between the villages of Cohoes and Waterford, so too do these two majestic river valleys come together in the Environmental Consortium.

Spanning across the watershed, our member institutions range from small liberal arts colleges, to state universities, to large research institutions.  Our membership also includes affiliate institutions and non-profit education and research organizations.  Click here or on the map to view pdf copy of the watershed map below with interactive layers.
