Watershed organization welcomes board member — The Housatonic Valley Association (HVA) board welcomes Peter Greenough of Millerton to its board of directors for a three-year term.
Greenough is on the Village Planning Board in Millerton and leads a local tree planting effort. He and his wife, Millerton Village Deputy Mayor Christine Bates, provided support for the interpretive sign for the demonstration rain garden that was installed this May in Millerton. The Housatonic Valley Association worked with Greenough and his wife, town leaders, volunteers, sponsors and grantors to bring the project to fruition. The rain garden will prevent storm water pollution from reaching nearby streams.
Greenough’s professional background includes working in international banking, securities and consulting. A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in history, he served two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in southwest Colombia before receiving his master’s in business administration from Columbia University. He taught venture capital at the Columbia Business School in New York, and introductory investment banking at Baruch College for several years.
Founded in 1941, the organization is dedicated to protecting the entire Housatonic River Watershed, which includes about 2,000 square miles of land stretching from western Massachusetts through western Connecticut and eastern New York to Long Island Sound. Offices are located in Wassaic; Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut, and South Lee, Massachusetts. Visit www.hvatoday.org.
