Cari grew up working on a dairy farm, so she knows firsthand the trials farmers face year in and year out. At Scenic Hudson, she has helped alleviate some of these trials by partnering with farm families to assure their land will always be available for agriculture and, in turn, providing them with funds to meet unexpected needs and grow their operations. Overall, Cari has partnered with landowners and fellow land trusts to oversee the protection of more than 16,000 acres across the Hudson Valley — food-producing fields and orchards, iconic vistas, and irreplaceable wildlife habitats.
