Hudson Valley Reefkeepers was formed in 2003 by a group of reef aquarists
from the Hudson Valley. Since the formation of the group,
Our members come from throughout the Hudson Valley, including Dutchess, Orange, Ulster, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, and Columbia counties. The group's experience ranges from professionals to "newbies".
The common tie for our membership (besides geography) is the advancement
of the reef aquaria hobby. By sharing our experiences,
As a group focused on responsible husbandry, we also share the goal of natural reef conservation and preservation, so that others may be able to enjoy this rewarding hobby.
The group generally meets monthly, at an informal gathering. To find out when the next meeting will be, check out the events section. These meetings are a great way to get to know other members, as well as to get some tips on the "how-to's" of the hobby.
