Dutchess County Environmental Science Advisory Network (ESAN)

The Dutchess Area Environmental Science Advisory Network (ESAN) aims to promote the improved scientific understanding of critical environmental issues by the public and local community officials, and exchange of environmental science data, through the collection, analysis, sharing and diffusion of reliable and unbiased scientific data. ESAN provides a forum to infuse scientific knowledge into environmental decision-making, convey ecological science to the media and the general public, and provide a collaborative network for the environmental science community. To accomplish this mission, and to be able to work with all stakeholders, ESAN is an independent, apolitical and non-advocacy organization, and will draw on all available resources to present the most valid scientific data.

For more information on ESAN, please see their Guiding Principles Document , or contact the ESAN Chair, Dr. Stuart Findlay of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, at findlays@caryinstitute.org
