This is a beautiful tidal freshwater wetland fed by the Enderkill Creek on the Hudson River Estuary. It is home to many migratory and resident birds and fish. We love the biological diversity of marsh and swamp plants that grow and change throughout the seasons. Water levels rise and fall daily in the wetland with tidal cycles that are influences by the adjacent Hudson River.
The Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve is a National Estuarine Research Reserve in the state of New York. Home to more than 200 species of fish, the Hudson River serves as a nursery ground for such important fish as sturgeon, striped bass and American shad.
