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!
