Scenic Hudson chief discusses group’s environmental work

SALISBURY, CT–On Tuesday, May 12 at 10 a.m. Scenic Hudson President Ned Sullivan will provide an illustrated Zoom talk about how Scenic Hudson launched the modern environmental movement in the 1960s and emerged as a champion of clean air and water, and protected land and farms throughout the region in the 21st century.

The online talk is sponsored by Noble Horizons in Salisbury, CT.

Mr. Sullivan has led the organization’s collaborative victories against threats to the region’s natural beauty and environment—halting the proposed St. Lawrence Cement plant, reducing the height of LG’s headquarters atop the Palisades and spearheading the ongoing campaign for a comprehensive PCB cleanup.

During his tenure, Scenic Hudson has protected 35,000 “must-save” acres—from scenic landmarks in the Hudson Highlands to productive fields and orchards on more than 125 family farms and the organization of a dozen public parks.

Prior to joining Scenic Hudson, Mr. Sullivan served as Environmental Commissioner of Maine, where he brought together environmental and business leaders across party lines.

He earned a B.A. in political science and a coordinate degree in environmental studies from Williams College and master’s degrees from Yale University’s School of Management and School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. In recognition of his “dedication and willingness to build the necessary bridges, battle through the bureaucratic red tape and address financial and technical challenges,” Mr. Sullivan  received the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies Distinguished Service Award in 2012.

Registrants will receive the Zoom link after they register with Noble Horizons Retirement Communities.
