Our Vision and Mission

FCWC, founded in 1965, envisions a county in which an environmental ethic defines and shapes all public and private decisions.

 

Our mission is to provide leadership that educates  about environmental issues, advocates sound decision making, and unifies groups and individuals to protect and preserve Westchester's environment and address climate change.

Our motto is “Think Globally, Act Locally,” because we know the most effective change is from the grassroots – it comes from you.
