HUDSON VALLEY—Scenic Hudson supports the call by U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney that the U.S. Coast Guard must adhere to four basic principles as it conducts its Ports and Waterways Safety Assessment (PAWSA) for the Hudson River. These principles will ensure that all stakeholders, including communities and environmental organizations, have a meaningful voice in the process.
Adds 132 acres to popular RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary
CATSKILL (Greene County)—Scenic Hudson’s protection of 132 acres adjacent to its RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary ensures this land will continue sustaining one of the most unique and unspoiled habitats along the Hudson River estuary and will help the region be more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

UPDATE: Upon careful review of Coast Guard policy, it’s now clear that the development outlined below does not effectively eliminate the proposal to anchor many more crude-oil barges on the Hudson. It creates a structured process for evaluating the potential need for anchorages and their risk to the public, the environment and our communities. See this page for more information on the Coast Guard process.
