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 promote and educate these issues.  Seven members serve three, four-year 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. 


  • Hudson Farmer's Market Community Day is Saturday, June 26, 2021.
  • America Recycles Day is November 15th. Take the pledge.
