The aim of the HHLT Hudson Highlands Regional River of Words Program is to educate and connect children throughout the region to the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Hudson Highlands and instill a sense of stewardship in our youngest residents.
We've updated and refreshed our River of Words (ROW) program website to make it easier for teachers, administrators and parents to access information about this unique education program offered to local public schools by HHLT. Please visit the new site to discover HHLT's ROW program for yourself.
The River of Words Poetry Trail, celebrating the nature-inspired poetry of local children, is available for free self-guided tours from dawn to dusk through Sunday, August 28.
The Poetry Trail, offered in partnership with Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary in Garrison, features selected works that represent hundreds of poems created by students from public schools in the Land Trust's mission area throughout the 2015-16 school year during HHLT's Regional River of Words environmental education workshops.In late September, the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall will host a Poetry Trail featuring a different set of poems. Details on the fall Poetry Trail installation will be available closer to its opening.
