The Columbia Project is working towards restoring, operating, and interpreting the historic steamship S.S. Columbia on a non-profit basis. As a floating mobile museum the ship will revitalize communities of the Hudson Valley through responsible tourism while reviving the regionís 200 year old steamboating tradition.

Education: To create educational programming for students, local residents, and tourists that will elaborate on the rich cultural, environmental, and economic heritage of the Hudson Valley and its waterfront communities.

The Environment: To raise awareness of the natural landscape and environment of the Hudson Valley: its mountains, rivers, wildlife, and wetlands.
