Overview


The Environmental Awareness Committee (EAC) serves to educate and advise residents on environmental issues such as recycling, storm water, beautification, stream & wetlands clean-up and water & energy efficiency. The EAC promotes these topics through events such as Green on the Green, and as the Hudson affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.  Efforts to educate residents on storm water include a rain garden at Barlow Community Center, rain barrel art program and rain barrel workshops. The EAC partners with many community organizations such as the Taste of Hudson and Hudson Farmer's Market to educate about these issues. 

The committee has seven members who serve four-year terms for up to three terms. 

Volunteers are welcome to assist the committee with its education programs and events. Complete the volunteer form to let us know your areas of interest. An EAC member will contact you with information on programs and ways to volunteer. 

Events

  • America Recycles Day is November 15th each year. Take the pledge.
  • Save the Date! On April 23, 2022, the EAC will host an environmental education event and celebration. More info will be posted here and on the City of Hudson Facebook when available.
