Stream to River - Hudson River Day

Parker students participated today in the Day in the Life of the Hudson project organized by the DEC.  3,000 students from Troy to NYC collect data on this day each year to help assess the health of the river. 

Parker students in grades 2-3 and 6-7 have participated for several years.  They extend their study through our Stream-to-River project, and during the course of the school year, add data from Parker's creek and Crooked Lake.  They become knowledgeable about interconnected water systems as they advocate for clean water practices.  Plus, it's fun!
