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, we have adapted several programs to a virtual format. Visit here to learn more about virtual field trips with Hudson River Park, and explore our offerings below. Please check back later for updates or sign up for our mailing list here.
