In 2008, Scenic Hudson was one of the nation’s first land trusts to be recognized for meeting the highest standards in conserving land for public benefit. This validation came from the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, a national land conservation organization that represents more than 1,000 member land trusts supported by more than five million members nationwide.
