Robert F. Kennedy Jr. - Epilogue

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has worked on environmental issues across the Americas. He was named one of Time Magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet” for his success in helping Riverkeeper lead the fight to restore the Hudson River. The watershed agreement he negotiated on behalf of environmentalists and New York City watershed consumers is regarded as an international model in stakeholder consensus negotiations and sustainable development. Kennedy serves as senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper, and president of Waterkeeper Alliance. Among his published books are Crimes Against Nature and The Riverkeepers. His articles have appeared in, among others, The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The Nation, Outside, and The Village Voice. Kennedy is a licensed master falconer, and as often as possible he pursues a life-long enthusiasm for whitewater paddling.

Robert Kennedy Jr. contributed the epilogue to Yellowstone to Yukon: Freedom to Roam (Braided River, 2005). For more information, visit
