Join our River Project educators this month on Little Island for a series of creative workshops focused on the Park’s Sanctuary waters.
Visit us at the Art Cart, Little Island’s mobile hub for creativity and artmaking, where our educators will be leading a series of STEM workshops inspired by our local waterways.
Join us at each workshop to discover different animals native to the Estuary including fish, crabs, seahorses and plankton. Create animal-inspired art and learn about the important role each organism plays in the Hudson River ecosystem. These workshops are free to join—however, timed entry to Little Island is required.

Meet Hudson River wildlife at the Wetlab, our research aquarium that is free & open to the public!
The Park’s Wetlab aquarium features Hudson River wildlife and provides guided tours for visitors of all ages. During Wetlab Look-ins, you can join a drop-in tour led by our River Project team to learn more about fascinating local wildlife including oyster toadfish, lined seahorses and blue crabs.
Our Wetlab opens each year in June and features a rotating exhibit of fish and invertebrates that are collected in the Park as part of an ongoing fish ecology survey. Animals are also regularly released throughout the season to ensure that their behaviors are minimally impacted, meaning there’s always something new to explore at the Wetlab!
Want to learn more about local wildlife? Check out our Virtual Wetlab, which is a digital field guide featuring the most common species of fish, invertebrates and reptiles commonly found in our Wetlab.
