Why is the Hudson Valley worth fighting for?

We asked these women why they work to preserve and protect the Hudson Valley. Their answers speak of love and connection.

“For my children.”

“For my community.”

“For love of nature”

“For the river.”

“For pride of place.”

“For the future.”

From mountaintop weddings to hikes with 4-footed family members to citizen science at the river, their stories reveal a deep love of nature and an abiding commitment to this valley that we all call home.

Join us to protect the Hudson Valley

At Scenic Hudson, we’re committed to preserving the natural beauty of our region and building the strength and resiliency of our communities for these women, their families, and all of us.
