Well ECOS, or the Environmental Clearinghouse, is a regional environmental non-profit organization founded in Schenectady, New York in 1971. This non-political association of people is dedicated to understanding and preserving our natural environment while fostering ecological stewardship within the greater Capital District region. ECOS membership is open to all, and the organization is supported by membership contributions, donations, grants and volunteers.
There has been a long tradition of Union College faculty (active and retired) being involved in the organization as members. Erin Delman '11 has been the first Union student to join the board.
