HHLT Fundraising for We ACT for Environmental Justice
HHLT is a community-based, nonprofit land conservation organization that protects and preserves the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Hudson Highlands region of New York State, where the Appalachian Mountains cross the Hudson River.
Less than 50 miles north of New York City, this area is rich in biodiversity, providing critical habitat connections for many wildlife species of the Hudson Valley. A place of dramatic scenic beauty, the Highlands attract millions of visitors each year, including over a hundred thousand to the most popular hiking trail in North America, Breakneck Ridge.
HHLT is celebrating Earth Day this year in many ways, including in joining We ACT's Earth Day 5k to raise funds for their work.
From their website (weact.org): "WE ACT’s mission is to build healthy communities by ensuring that people of color and/or low income residents participate meaningfully in the creation of sound and fair environmental health and protection policies and practices."
