Places for Research, Education, Stewardship, & Training
As part of a nationwide network of Reserves sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, we put federal funding, science, and tools to work on behalf of Hudson River communities and natural resources.
Working with the Hudson River Estuary Program
The Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve assist the Hudson River Estuary Program with implementing the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda—a conservation and restoration blueprint for a strong, vibrant, healthy estuary and watershed.
The Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve’s mission is to improve the health and resilience of the Hudson River Estuary by conserving estuarine habitats through integrated education, training, stewardship, restoration, monitoring, and research programs.
The Estuary Training Program (ETP) provides training and up-to-date scientific information, access to technologies, and skill-building opportunities. Central to the ETP is the Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project, which provides science-based recommendations for shore zone management to enhance natural benefits while meeting protection needs.
