Park Programs

The Dutchess County Parks Division is offering a variety of educational programs this summer. Our programs give children an opportunity to experience and learn about the natural history of our parks. Each session focuses on various aspects of environmental awareness, prehistoric Native American culture, and survival skills. Our goal is to give children a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature within a fun and entertaining atmosphere. We also try to instill a sense of personal responsibility and teamwork during each session. We look forward to seeing you this summer.

If you have any questions regarding the following programs, please contact the Park Naturalist at 845-298-4602 or by email at parknaturalist@dutchessny.gov.

*These programs are on a first come, first serve basis. Be sure to register early.
