Join Riverkeeper’s new President Tracy Brown for a walking tour of Olana’s artist-designed landscape focusing on the current threats and future prospects for the Hudson River, which sits directly in Olana’s historic viewshed. Learn more about how we can work together to meet the challenges impacting the health of the Hudson River and the upcoming priorities for the river’s leading team of advocates. Riverkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore the Hudson River from source to sea and safeguard drinking water supplies, through advocacy rooted in community partnerships, science and law.
Tracy Brown became President and Hudson Riverkeeper in 2021. A recognized leader in clean water advocacy, Brown brings a multidisciplinary approach to Riverkeeper, prioritizing data-driven, community-oriented strategies to realize our mission. She previously served as Regional Director of Water Protection at Save the Sound, establishing their New York office which delivers science-based projects that protect and restore Long Island Sound. Prior to joining Save the Sound, Brown worked at Riverkeeper for seven years. She was instrumental in developing Riverkeeper’s water quality monitoring program. A resident of Sleepy Hollow, Brown is a founder of the Peabody Preserve Outdoor Classroom, a nature preserve for hands-on, outdoor education for the students of the Tarrytown-Sleepy Hollow public schools.
