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. Sign up through your registration or emails us.


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.


This year we have four opportunities for participants - two full training and two refreshers. Full training workshops run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM rain or shine with a blend of indoor instruction and outdoor sampling. Please bring your own lunch, snacks will be provided.

Two weekday afternoon refresher workshops will be run from 3:30-6:30 PM for returning participants
