RENSSELAER - Thousands of high school students across New York have been deployed all along the Hudson River to sample a day in the life of the river.
They are collecting water samples and gathering data as part of an assignment.
It's a program put on by the state Department of Environmental Conservation. The program helps students understand how their piece of the river fits into the larger Hudson estuary ecosystem.
This program is in its eighth year. More than 3,000 students and educators are participating.
