About Us

To sustain and enhance the Hudson Valley’s inspirational beauty and health for generations to come.

Hudson Valley’s Largest Environmental Organization

Founded in 1963 to save iconic Storm King Mountain from a destructive industrial project, Scenic Hudson is credited with launching the modern grassroots environmental movement. Today, with more than 25,000 ardent supporters, we are the largest environmental group in the region.

In the face of new and ongoing challenges — as well as the effects of climate change — we remain committed to making the Hudson Valley a great place to live, work and play by preserving and strengthening the region’s great assets — beautiful open spaces, working farms, and historic cities and town centers.
