The Environmental Awareness Committee (EAC) serves to advise City Council and educate residents on wise stewardship of Hudson's natural resources. The committee advises on topics such as recycling, storm water management, stream restoration, wetlands conservation, sustainable development, environmental technologies, and water & energy efficiency.
The committee has seven members who serve four-year terms for up to three terms.
The EAC's biggest educational outreach is Hudson Earth Week
, which includes a series of events about renewable energy, storm water, and more. The Hudson EAC is also an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful
(KAB). Through KAB, the EAC works to reduce litter by providing education and sponsoring "plogs" (community litter cleanups).
