We know folks are looking to invest in organizations they can trust.

Scenic Hudson has proven leadership, a strong track record and a visionary plan that stands to benefit all the people of the Hudson Valley. Your support of Scenic Hudson will make a lasting impact in the lives of people young and old and from all walks of life. See below for our many giving options — including how you can make a donation in honor of someone special.

Scenic Hudson is pursuing a visionary plan

We're working to protect the most important land along the river — the "must save" landscapes that meet New York State's highest standards for ecological, scenic and agricultural values. We've got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to preserve these lands in collaboration with 16 local land trusts and government agencies.

Scenic Hudson is supporting local farms

At a time of skyrocketing food prices and a growing commitment among families to buy local, we have successfully protected a growing farm belt in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess and Columbia counties that will help ensure a safe nearby source of food for residents of the Hudson Valley and New York City.

Scenic Hudson is inspiring people to connect with the natural beauty of our region

We've created or enhanced more than 60 parks, preserves and historic sites throughout the Hudson Valley, and our unique park outings give people of all ages a chance to experience the beauty and power of the river all year long.
