For #GivingTuesday, please do donate to OVEC! Imagine what our area would look like if we weren’t around! Janet Keating, who was OVEC executive director until her retirement in 2016, writes:

Many of us take for granted the air we breathe, the land on which we reside, and the water that sustains us. Naively, we assume that environmental agencies do their jobs, unhindered by politics, along with all the necessary resources to protect us. In an ideal world, that would be true. Unfortunately, after three decades of experience, I know that without the engagement of persistent, sincere citizens, polluting industries are seldom held accountable and frequently are granted a “free pass” by state and federal regulators.

For the past 30 years, in our Tri-State region, the air, water, and forests—and the people who depend on a healthy environment—have benefited because of citizen engagement. Our region is healthier because of OVEC.
