Our 2015 Event will be held Tuesday, October 20th, 2015! Plan to attend a workshop prior to the event!


We Provide Three Types of Participant Workshops all are FREE to participants.

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.

All workshops run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM rain or shine. Please bring your own lunch, snacks will be provided.

SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS' WORKSHOP ON THE ROLE OF SUBMERGED PLANTS IN THE HUDSON: This workshop is designed especially for our secondary school teachers but is open to other teachers who wish to infuse a higher level of sampling and working with data into their Day in the Life experience. We will cover a blend of activities from background information on valisneria (wild celery) and other submerged plants in the Hudson, some measurements and field work, data discussion, and ending with developing a curriculum piece to take into the classroom. Session runs from 9:30AM to 3:30PM. Please bring your own lunch, snacks will be provided.
