Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor October 22, 2020

Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor 2020 videos and materials are public on the DEC Youtube channel! 

 This is the 18th year of the event, which typically brings 5,000 students and teachers to the Hudson’s diverse waterfronts for one day each October. We couldn’t safely promote 80 field trips this year, so we worked with over thirty partner organizations to create a mosaic of videos. These videos portray river science through the eyes of the students, who can follow along with data collection sheets at home, and take a deeper dive with a guest scientist at the end of each video. The videos are divided by geography, from New York Harbor to the Troy Dam with Adirondack and Mohawk cameos. We hope that these videos can be used as engaging student and classroom activities, especially as many schools and communities are facing extra challenges.
