Hudson River Park Trust

Hudson River Park, which spans Manhattan’s west side waterfront from Chambers Street to West 59th Street, hosts year-round environmental education for all ages. Programs promote the exploration of surrounding plant and animal life using the Hudson River waterfront as its classroom. Our programs allow participants to interact with the river and park through enriching and fun activities that will awaken the scientist within while simultaneously heightening awareness about and stewardship for the Hudson River system. Programs topics include fishing, fish anatomy, plankton, food webs, water quality, human impacts, plants and insects.
