Our 2020 event will be held on Thursday, October 22nd, 2020! Several options for workshops are held for teachers and educators leading up to the event. Sign up through your registration form or email us and see you on the river!


Each year we offer two types of Teacher & Educator Workshops: Event Training Workshops and Special Topics Workshops. Both are FREE to the participants but with ONE REQUEST, if you sign up for a workshop we count on you to be there and bring staff in based on the number of registrants.

Many of 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 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.
