Estuary Snapshot Day


Estuary Snapshot Day has taken place at the Lower East Side Ecology, in collaboration with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and Columbia University, every year since 2003. Hudson River Snapshot Day is designed to celebrate the Hudson River Estuary and educate participants on the uniqueness of our estuary as part of the annual recognition of "National Estuaries Week". Each fall, environmental education centers are encouraged to team with school classes along the Hudson River to create a day-in-the-life picture of the river from the Troy Dam to New York Harbor.
