ELLA’s mission is to bring together town-appointed members of conservation, environmental, and open space commissions from across New York’s Hudson Hills and Highlands to strengthen environmental protection at a regional level, through environmental training, sharing lessons learned, and fostering collaboration.
ELLA has received a grant from the Westchester Community Foundation for its Conservation Accreditation Program! www.wcf-ny.org.
ELLA membership is open to individuals from 31 towns and villages in the Hudson Hills and Highlands who serve on any town-appointed environmental committee.
ELLA membership is free, and provides an opportunity for networking with colleagues as well as a variety of resources for members to strengthen their role as environmental leaders in their municipality and the larger region.
