The Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve spans nearly 5,000 acres of marshland, wetland, and freshwater tidal mudflats. It is located along a 100-mile stretch of the Hudson River Estuary and serves as a home for more than 200 species of fish, including sturgeon, striped bass, and American shad. The Reserve is a leader in sustainable shoreline management in New York state and a valued resource for education, training, stewardship, restoration, monitoring, and research in the area.
