" DAY IN THE LIFE 2020!", WELCOME TO OUR FIRST EVER VIRTUAL EVENT. OUR PARTNERS WORKED THROUGHOUT THE ESTUARY TO COLLECT VIDEOS AND MEASUREMENTS FROM A WIDE RANGE OF SITES THAT WE HAVE PACKAGED TO SHARE WITH YOU.

Each of the above interactive videos was produced by the DEC from live footage collected in the three geographic areas of the Hudson River estuary. Watch each one to explore the Hudson & then all three videos to explore more deeply!

Videos and data for this year's Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor was collected on Thursday October 22nd 2020 by a wonderful group of partners. This has been put together into three separate videos that are now available for school groups to dig into and interpret, each of a different section, and each with a little different focus. We encourage you to focus on one section or to explore all three and use the different linked worksheets to travel through the video. You will collect data as you go and then use your data to answer a few questions at the end of the datasheet. Forquestions of additional information contact Margie Turrin at LDEO, Rebecca Houser or Chris Bowser with The Hudson River Estuary Program. And remember all of the 2020 data will be posted soon from each of the sampling sites and there were over 50!

Curious about the results from with Day in the Life 2019? CHECK OUT THE 2019 DATA PAGE, activity sheets, or take a minute to work with the interactive database to compare parameters, compare sites and look through time! Teachers and students did you enjoy Day in the Life? Would you like to have some fun with the data? Cary Institute offers a very innovative way to do that through their annual Data Jam! It is a wonderful and creative way to extend the Day in the Life having fun with data!

samplersEvent Description: The event is designed to celebrate the Hudson River Estuary and educate participants on the uniqueness of our estuary as part of the annual recognition of "National Estuaries Week". The event is coordinated by The Hudson River Estuary Program of New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Each fall, environmental education centers are encouraged to team with school classes along the Hudson River to create a day-in-the-life picture of the river from the Troy Dam to New York Harbor. The event began in 2003 with a modest 300 student participants and has grown until in our most recent event, October 2018 where we involved over 5000 students and individual participants ~ 90 sites from the New York Bight up to Peebles Island on the Hudson River, and into the Mohawk watershed, a major Hudson River tributary. Each site gathered data on the Hudson and shared their results, gaining a better understanding of this historic and vital estuary system. Data, Lesson Plans, Resources...lots of resource materials are provided here for your use in joining us on a virtual exploration of the river...and plan to join us on in 2019 for your own dip in the Hudson River as part of our Day in the Life on the Hudson River! Check out the results page!
