Hudson River Park’s River Project hosts a series of free and low-cost environmental education programs for organized groups using the Hudson River waterfront as its classroom. Field trip programs allow students to interact with the River and Park through enriching and fun activities that inspire the scientist within each student!
Due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, all participants, chaperones and Park staff are required to wear masks during in-person field trip programs. Our programs include elements during which students will share materials like clipboards, microscopes, game pieces, etc. Please note: some of our programs are adapted for in-person OR virtual formats, while others are only offered in-person. Please check back later for updates or sign up for our mailing list here.
