Keeping our air and water clean, helping plants and animals thrive, safeguarding communities from flooding—all hinge on preserving the valley’s beautiful wild lands
Protecting habitats in the Hudson River’s largest freshwater tidal swamp and helping the region become more resilient to climate-change impacts—these are the direct bene ts of conserving 132 acres along Ramshorn Marsh in Greene County. The property is adjacent to our RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary, where paddlers launch into the marsh to marvel at bald eagles, beaver and other wildlife.
We’re informing and rallying a region-wide corps of citizen advocates to fight for a clean, healthy river and valley
We’re committed to ensuring our cities and towns are vibrant and environmentally healthy and reflect the needs of their citizens.
A vacant lot in downtown Poughkeepsie transformed into a green haven for workers, residents and visitors—that’s just one result of our work this year in helping residents advance their goals in their own communities. Product of a two-year collaborative effort (Scenic Hudson provided the design), Mural Square (top and bottom right) also offers a central gathering space that’s already hosted festivals and concerts since its summer opening.
A healthy planet depends on helping children and communities develop a love and respect for the natural world around them
What unifies residents of the Hudson Valley? The things we share that make living here so special.
Spanning communities from New York City to Troy, the region’s vibrant outdoor markets offer a bounty of delicious food, supplied in large part by farms Scenic Hudson and our partners have conserved. These markets also provide regular occasions for people to come together—catching up with neighbors, meeting local farmers and making new friends.
