Garrison resident brings passion for land preservation

Adding to the substantial environmental and business expertise represented by the members of its Board of Directors, Scenic Hudson announces a new board member, Carl H. “Chip” Loewenson Jr.

Loewenson is a partner in the New York Office of Morrison & Foerster and senior member of the firm’s Securities Litigation, Enforcement and White-Collar Defense Group.

A member of the New York State Ethics Commission from 2001 to 2007, Loewenson served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York from 1985 to 1990. In that post he was successful in 15 out of 16 verdicts in the cases he tried. In 1991, he received the Director’s Award for Superior Performance from the director of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys.

Loewenson has demonstrated his passion for land preservation — assisting Scenic Hudson to preserve Popolopen Ridge and Rose’s Camp, two iconic properties in the Hudson Highlands that have been added to Bear Mountain State Park for public enjoyment in perpetuity. He serves on the board of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. He lives in Manhattan and Garrison with his wife, Susan Brune, and their three children.
