Scenic Hudson preserves land and farms and creates parks that connect people with the inspirational power of the Hudson River, while fighting threats to the river and natural resources that are the foundation of the valley’s prosperity.
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.
The Hudson Valley is a community of informed and engaged citizens working to make the region a model of vibrant riverfront cities and towns linked by inviting parks and trails, beautiful and resilient landscapes, and productive farms.
