Education Programs at the Reserve

Learn and have fun at the Reserve!

The Hudson River Research Reserve’s Education Department provides a variety of free education programs to school groups, families, teachers, communities, and the general public. Programs are centered around the ecology and environment of the Hudson River.

Topics include:

  • Hudson River animals, habitats, and ecosystems
  • Changes in the river from climate change, invasive species, and land use patterns
  • Research on the river, including water monitoring and mapping vegetation and the river bottom
  • Student-level research and stewardship projects

Different programs focus on school classes and the general public. Student education programs follow New York State Learning Standards as well as national K-12 Estuarine Education Program (KEEP). Please click on the links below to find out more about specific programs:
