A great time was had by all on Sunday, April 14, at Scenic Hudson’s 6th annual 5K Spring Sprint at our Shaupeneak Ridge preserve. Thanks to the 134 runners who made the day. We were proud to honor the Town of Esopus with our Hudson Valley Hero Award for the new Esopus Explorers program.
Our beloved Hudson Valley is facing the biggest threat in a generation. The unprecedented and dangerous increase in the shipment of highly volatile Bakken crude oil through our communities risks contaminating our clean water and decimating our tourism economy. That’s why I’m asking you to call for a moratorium on volatile crude oil shipments TODAY.
HUDSON RIVER VALLEY—With an increased frequency of oil-spill disasters across the nation, a trio of environmental groups is pushing the federal Department of Transportation to gain protections for Hudson River.
