Lisina Hoch

Scenic Hudson mourns the passing—and celebrates the extraordinary life—of Lisina Hoch, a great champion of protecting the world’s natural treasures. A longtime member of our Board, Lisina inspired us all with her wise counsel, graciousness and warmth. She provided very generous, early support for many Scenic Hudson initiatives—including our Hudson Valley-New York City Foodshed Conservation Plan—inviting others to share her commitment to our work. Lisina’s obituary captures perfectly her love of travel and family, and her dedication to causes near and far that improve the lives of people and wildlife. In 2016, we were delighted to honor Lisina’s many accomplishments by presenting her with Scenic Hudson’s International Visionary Award—just a small token of the respect and love we felt for this “Grande Dame of the Hudson Valley.”
