Simon Roosevelt

Simon Roosevelt has served as chair of the board of directors for The Scenic Hudson Land Trust since 2016 after years of service as a board member of the land trust and Scenic Hudson.

Simon Roosevelt is an avid hunter, outdoorsman and conservationist whose interests have involved him in a wide variety of conservation and environmental projects in North America, South America and Africa. Current projects include the Conservation Roundtable, a forum that brings together the CEOs of American hunting, environmental and land conservation organizations to discuss and act on larger issues of common concern. 

He is also at work on a book portraying the essential connection between American hunting and conservation. Intended primarily for non-hunters, the book will be a tribute to American Fair Chase hunting—its conservation legacy, its crucial role in conservation today and its integral part in the shaping of American character and heritage. Roosevelt also is a frequent writer and commentator in print and social media on topics relating to hunting, conservation and environmentalism.

Roosevelt is a commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for the New York City Region and a member of the Boone & Crockett Club and of the Camp Fire Club of America.
