CANCELED – HRPK’s River Project SUBMERGE Marine Science Festival

Weather update: due to significant rain that is expected all day, Friday’s field trip day is canceled. We look forward to welcoming everyone to SUBMERGE on Saturday.

Calling NYC teachers & students: Explore marine science during a field trip to Hudson River Park’s SUBMERGE Marine Science Festival!

SUBMERGE is an annual two-day celebration of our local waterways located on Pier 84. While Saturday is open to science lovers of all ages to attend, Friday is all about NYC students. During this special day of SUBMERGE, teachers can book a field trip to attend the festival and learn from STEM experts across New York.

During a field trip to SUBMERGE, students will have the opportunity to take part in this interactive festival and try out awesome experiments, meet local wildlife and more! SUBMERGE field trips are free to book, with priority access given to Title I schools.

Space is limited so please fill out this form to be added to our list for priority booking. Please note that this form does not guarantee a field trip spot.

Our 25th Anniversary event season is presented by Hudson River Park Friends, the Park’s designated fundraising partner. HRPK Friends is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the completion, care and enhancement of the Park.

Hudson River Park is not part of NYC Parks, and we rely on private funds for our programming, maintenance and operations. That means your donations are essential to ensuring our event season remains free for the public. Show your support today.

Stay tuned for Festival Highlights. 

Featuring a diverse array of hands-on marine science, opportunities to meet local wildlife and the chance to get on the Hudson River, SUBMERGE offers so many science-centric activities for the whole family to enjoy!
