Carol Ash

Carol is the President of Carey Center for Global Good. She was also Former Commissioner of the NY State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP); former Executive Director of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission. Prior, she was NYC Regional Director, Department of Environmental Conservation; NYS Director, The Nature Conservancy; and NYS Historic Preservation Officer. 

Carol’s career has demonstrated her commitment to the Parks and Historic Sites. As a co-founder of the Conservancy, it is impossible to name a favorite of all the trails and wonderous areas of the Palisades that she has walked, cared for and helped restore. One simply cannot think of the Palisades without thinking of Carol Ash and Carol simply cannot think of a world without the Palisades.
