The Hudson River Reserve’s field-based education programs are rooted in science and designed for students, teachers, families, and life-long learners. We help you get your feet wet and boots muddy to discover the Hudson River estuary for yourself.

The Reserve’s education programs are delivered in partnership with the Hudson River Estuary Program. For more information on all of our programs, please visit the NYSDEC’s calendar of events.

For Teachers & Educators

Engage your young learners with the Hudson River estuary—with both in-person and virtual programs, resources, and training, we can help.

For Youth & Community

Explore the river through videos and activities, or join one of our in-person programs using real scientific equipment to collect data on water, habitats, birds, and fish.

For Researchers & Stewards

HRNERR’s Estuary Training Program connects communities with the training and technical assistance they need to adapt to a changing planet.
