Our Mission

Scenic Hudson preserves land and farms and creates parks that connect people with the inspirational power of the Hudson River, while fighting threats to the river and natural resources that are the foundation of the valley’s prosperity.

We are guided by three enduring principles:

  1. Outstanding quality of life is achievable only when a clean, healthy environment is a key component of economic development.
  2. All citizens have a right to outstanding quality of life, including access to our Hudson River, to open space and to participate in community decision-making.
  3. Our natural environment is an irreplaceable source of spiritual and artistic vitality and must be preserved forever.
