Project Title & Description
Hudson River Park Trust FFY09-EE
Hudson River Park Trust and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will provide professional development for educators in eight 6-hour teacher workshops using field tested environmental education programs including Hudson River Park Estuary Initiative, and Projects Learning Tree, WILD and WET. Topics will include watershed ecology, water quality, invasive species, combined sewer overflows and water pollution. Teachers will understand how they and their students can protect the Hudson and the environment in general. Preparation for the annual "Day in the Life of the Hudson River Estuary” and development of stewardship practices are integral parts of the workshops.
