Conservation

The Hudson-Mohawk Group’s leaders and volunteers focus on a variety of priority projects and campaigns including: curbing climate change, reducing energy demand and increasing renewable energy, reducing air and water pollution and toxic chemicals use, and protecting wetlands and other critical natural areas, wildlife and farmlands and emphasizing smart waste management.  We link with our Atlantic Chapter staff and volunteers and organizations and activists at the state and local level to strengthen our efforts.   Grassroots conservation actions at the local level are critical to our communities and NYS becoming sustainable.

Political Committee

The Political Committee makes recommendations for endorsement of candidates in Federal, State, and local elections and works on the races of those selected candidates.  The recommendations are made based on a review of the candidates' voting record in office.  If the candidate is not currently in office the candidates will complete a questionnaire and attend an interview to provide their position on environmental issues.  If the Political Committee decides to begin the endorsement process for a particular race, all candidates will be offered the opportunity to apply.
