We work with K-12 school groups, scout groups, after-school clubs, and undergraduate programs to cater the visit to best fit your STEM curriculum (e.g., biology, chemistry, physics, Earth science). All content is hands-on, place-based education using the Hudson River and Piermont Marsh.

The Field Station is equipped with microscopes and user-friendly wentzscopes, a SMART board, a regional physical 3-D relief map of  Hudson and surrounding topography, and state-of-the-art scientific equipment to enhance students’ comprehension of some complex and often new information. The Field Station provides all the necessary gear for students to collect their own samples for investigations. Your students will never forget their visit to the Field Station!

Program fees are dependent on the number of students and amount of time spent at the Field Station. Grant support is available for qualifying schools. If you are interested in scheduling a visit to the Field Station, contact Laurel Zaima, Education and Outreach Coordinator.
