Paddle the Hudson River estuary with staff naturalists from the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve. These free, educational canoe trips explore tidal marshes, observe birds and wildlife, discover lush flowers and unique plants, and provide spectacular scenery.
The canoe trips are suitable for adults and children (6+), whether you’re an experienced or beginner paddler. The trips leave from two different launch sites: Stockport Flats in Columbia County and Tivoli North Bay in Dutchess County. Novices and families are welcome.
Additional canoe trips may be offered if demand warrants. Trips are also offered to high school and college classes, and municipal decision-makers such as town planners.
