Additionally, this land trust offers self-guided or interactive learning experiences at numerous parks and preserves throughout the Hudson River Valley. All of Scenic Hudson’s Parks & Preserves provide ideal “outdoor classrooms” for families, school and community groups to learn about the valley’s natural resources, how they’ve shaped the region’s culture and the importance of protecting them. By exploring waterfronts, wetlands, vernal pools and other features, students of all ages gain greater knowledge of and appreciation for these irreplaceable treasures and the vital roles they play in sustaining the lives of humans and wildlife.
