“CLC protects our natural beauty while strengthening the individual elements of that landscape.”
– John Friedman, Hudson
The scenic beauty of Columbia County is no secret. With your help, we created a map of scenic spots all around the county that you can click here to access. In 2015, many people shared their favorite scenic views through our online map. We are working on a comprehensive map that will combine the scenic views people love with information from municipal plans and studies, statewide resource assessments, and other publicly-available sources.
The Scenic Views Mapper is a collaborative effort of CLC and the Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program. Interested in knowing more about the why and how of mapping the county’s scenery? Click here.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program, the Hudson Valley National Heritage Area, and the Hudson River Valley Greenway.
