ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Department of Environmental Education’s Hudson River estuary educators have put together a virtual program for students, teachers, and families to enjoy the outdoors close to home.

The Virtual River introduces the natural world of the local Hudson River environment through videos, interactive lessons, and activities for those learning from home.

DEC has targeted its lessons at all ages, so family members from different grade levels can share lessons and learn together about their local environment. Take a dip in the digital river with four of their ten videos on river wildlife and habitats:

American Eel

Seining for Fish

Hudson River Turtles

Vernal Pools

Bring your favorite outdoor activities indoors with the DEC’s #AdventuresAtHome programs on the DEC website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube.
