Since its inception in 1965, FCWC has brought together concerned citizens, numerous community organizations, educators, and diverse professionals committed to preserving and rehabilitating the natural resources of Westchester County. FCWC is an educator, advocate, and protector. As a result of its sterling reputation and its role as an umbrella organization for numerous and disparate environmental groups, FCWC has become a trusted resource for the community. Government officials, environmental groups, schools, and concerned citizens seek the informed opinions and direction which have become the touchstone of FCWC.
Each year the Board identifies environmental issues to target in the coming year and discusses desired outcomes and strategies for accomplishing our goals. Over the course of the year, FCWC conducts workshops and other events to educate citizens of Westchester County about these environmental issues. In addition, FCWC is often asked to testify at hearings and to speak out on these and other environmental issues impacting the county.
