Home Background Workshops Resources Parameters Science Partners Data Lesson Plans

Our 2017 event will be held Thursday, October 12th, 2017! Workshops are held for teachers before the event. Below is a sample of what we offer, but 2017 is not posted yet. Check back for the schedule soon!


Each year we try to offer two types of Participant Workshops: Event Training Workshops and Special Topics Workshops. Both are FREE to the participants. The materials presented in the Special Topics Workshops are archived on our High School Page.

EVENT TRAINING WORKSHOPS: Event training workshops cover hands on exploration of all the sampling parameters and data collection techiniques for running the event at your site. The workshops focus on how to maximize student learning while engaging the students in field sampling, strengthening participants' understanding of the various tests and successful sampling techinques, and improving accuracy in data collection. We encourage you to attend one of these events as we use them for sharing ideas, dispensing supplies and networking with other Hudson River educators and enthusiasts. We scheduled several workshops in August and September in different salinity regimes and settings. To sign up for the workshops please complete and return this year's registration form either (online) (word) (pdf ) OR contact Rebecca Houser or Margie Turrin. All workshops run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM rain or shine. Please bring your own lunch, snacks will be provided.


EDUCATORS & TEACHERS' WORKSHOP ON THE GEOLOGY OF THE HUDSON RIVER VALLEY: We will offer two workshops this summer designed to explore the role that geology has played in the creation and continued development of the Hudson River. Led by Steve Schimmrich from SUNY Ulster's Geology Dept. on Tuesday 8/16 and Thursday 8/18 we will explore the geology of different sections of the river each day. Participants may sign up for one or both geology events each running from 10:00 AM to 4:00PM. Please bring plenty of water, your own lunch, sunscreen and most importantly comfortable walking shoes - not sandles or open back shoes. Car pooling will be organized for these events.
