NEW YORK, NY (Feb. 17, 2021)--The Open Space Institute has been working in the Hudson River Valley for almost a half-century, protecting land for the 2.5 million residents who today call the region home.
In February, OSI’s president and CEO Kim Elliman appeared on the “Land Use & the Climate for Change” episode of a podcast hosted by the sustainability planning nonprofit Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress.
During the discussion, he touched on OSI’s legacy protecting some of the most popular and iconic parks and recreational areas of the region, including the OSI’s River-to-Ridge Trail and Harriman State Park. He also discussed climate change and President Biden’s “30 by 30” land conservation initiative and protecting land for diverse users. Listen to the discussion here.
