Hudson Crossing Park is proud to offer free and low-cost educational opportunities throughout the school year and summer months for school groups as well as organizations and clubs. Open to children of all ages, Hudson Crossing Park’s educational programming is designed to foster outdoor, hands-on learning and instill a love of science and local history. While some components are paired with in-class learning, the primary focus of all HCP programs is to expose students to the natural, historic, and scientific resources in their backyard.
Hudson Crossing Park educators offer programming which ranges from seasonal tree studies and projects involving the NYS Mesonet Weather Station to teaching children about the amazing stories of the Revolutionary War that took place right on HCP grounds.
For more information or to sign your class or group up today, e-mail Park Educator Jessica Schwerd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hudson Crossing Park enjoys opportunities to work with staff and students from Skidmore. They support our events as volunteers and, as you see below, provide us with educational contributions that help us to maintain a high standard of offerings to our visitors.
We appreciate the ongoing support by Dr. A.J. Schneller, Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, and encourage you to visit the Skidmore site by tapping the college logo.
