Environmental Stewards

Do you love walking or running on the West Side? Enjoy the sunset from a pier? Relish kayaking or sailing in the Hudson River? Do you follow the changing seasons by what’s in bloom along the river? Hudson River Park is a unique blue and green oasis that connects New Yorkers to nature, unlike any other park in the city.

If you are looking for ways to become more involved in your community and give back to the Park, join the Environmental Stewards. Hudson River Park Friends’ Environmental Stewards is a group of devoted New Yorkers that aim to increase private contributions to Hudson River Park Friends, raise awareness around Hudson River Park as an important ecosystem, promote environmental initiatives within the Park and surrounding communities, and fund engaging environmental, sustainability, and estuary research programming for the broader Hudson River Park community.
