Hudson River Park hosts a substantial roster of low-cost and free environmental education programs to 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!
What Teachers Say About Our Programs:
- “We had a wonderful time at Hudson River Park! The program was engaging and the students learned things they wouldn't have learned in a typical classroom setting. It was a very hands-on experience that enhances our science curriculum.” – Pam Welkis, 3rd Grade teacher from PS 116 Queens
- “Thank you so much for providing an amazing educational experience for our students! We've attended two workshops over this past year and enjoyed both equally as much. Your staff goes above and beyond in making sure our students not only learn about science, but, enjoy it also! We look forward to returning again!” –Russ Bernstein, Science Teacher from PS 9, Bronx
