SAVE THE DATES: New Riverfront Parks Opening this Summer
We've had a busy winter behind the scenes at Scenic Hudson and are pleased to announce the opening dates of three new or improved parks. On Tuesday, May 31, we'll dedicate the Kathryn W. Davis RiverWalk Center in Tarrytown. On Saturday, July 9, we'll celebrate the opening of Long Dock Park in Beacon (Dutchess) with daylong festivities featuring live music and other happenings. And on Sunday, July 24, our new Falling Waters Preserve in Saugerties (Ulster) will officially open to the public. We'll have complete details about all the openings in forthcoming newsletters. In the meantime, you can get a sneak preview of the Falling Waters property by volunteering to help out at our Saturday, April 23 park cleanup day.
NY Times Highlights Scenic Hudson Land Protection Efforts
In a Thursday, April 14, feature story, the New York Times highlighted some of the collaborative efforts achieved between the Olana Partnership, Scenic Hudson, Columbia Land Conservancy, Audubon New York and landowners that have achieved great success in preserving iconic views from Olana. Scenic Hudson has conserved more than 1,300 acres visible from Olana—part of a magnificent panoramic landscape that inspired many of Frederic Church's iconic paintings. The Times article profiles two landowners who partnered with us to protect their land, and it explains that while viewshed protection is a growing movement nationwide, the concept has its roots in the Hudson Valley, with Scenic Hudson's 1963 battle to save Storm King Mountain.

RIVERFRONT COMMUNITIES: Adopt a Resolution to Revitalize your Waterfront
Last summer, Scenic Hudson published Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts, an illustrated guide offering strategies, tools and techniques to help communities bring new life to their riverfronts. In recent months residents and officials in riverfront communities have been asking us how they can start to implement the guide's recommendations. One important step is to adopt a resolution supporting the guide's principles.
To simplify the process, we've drafted some sample language that can be adapted for your community's needs. If you live in a riverfront community, please download the resolution and share it with elected officials. More ››
