HRNERR’s Estuary Training Program connects communities with the training and technical assistance they need to adapt to a changing planet.
We work with municipal officials, planners, state agencies, environmental non-profits, restoration scientists, shoreline stakeholders, and natural resource managers. Our trainings cover topics that include sea level rise, climate change adaptation, habitat protection, invasive species, and process skills.

Shorelines & Restoration
Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines
The Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project is a multi-year collaborative research project providing science-based recommendations for shore zone management which protects communities and enhances natural benefits.
Sustainable Shorelines compiles locally-relevant, nationally-significant products and resources utilized in nature-based shoreline management from the Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of Maine.
Estuary Training Program (ETP) events support municipal officials, planners, state agencies, environmental non-profits, restoration scientists, shoreline stakeholders, and natural resource managers with training events focused on estuarine issues. Topics vary, but can include sea level rise, climate change adaptation, protection of Hudson River aquatic and shoreline habitats, stormwater, and process skills such as effective communication and meeting facilitation.
ETP events exist to support the people who make decisions about Hudson River environmental issues, especially related to sea level rise, climate change, and restoration science.
