An environmental group focused on the Hudson Valley is the recipient of a sustainable education award.

Omega Institute for Holistic Studies recognized Poughkeepsie-based Scenic Hudson in the form of a $10,000 grant, the Institute’s second annual Leadership in Sustainable Education Award. Clearwater was the recipient last year. The award recognizes nonprofit peers who exemplify leadership in sustainable education and who share Rhinebeck-based Omega’s commitment to building a more just and sustainable world. Scenic Hudson will be honored with the award at Omega’s annual Where We Go From Here conference at the beginning of October. In addition to the $10,000 grant, Scenic Hudson will receive an organizational development grant for a strategic planning retreat at Omega.
