This spring,millions of wild animals will soon descend into the Hudson River Valley. Constitution Marsh sits in the middle of an important resting and breeding place for migratory birds.

To celebrate and learn more about the important science and education work of the marsh’s staff, join the advisory board of Constitution Marsh on May 4 in Garrison. This benefit provides funds for many marsh education, research and stewardship programs.

Sidamon-Eristoff has been a leader in conservation, and an environmental steward in the Hudson Valley and beyond. As chair of the board of the American Museum of Natural History, chair of the New York Community Trust, and through her work as an active board member of the World Wildlife Fund, she has helped promote public awareness of the importance of protecting our wildlife and natural resources on a global level. Locally, she has served on the boards of the Black Rock Forest Consortium, the Hudson River Foundation, the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum and Storm King Art Center.
