Hudson Valley Writing Project

Writers Hikes

Calling all teachers, writers, and hikers!

The Hudson Valley Writing Project invites you to get to know the parks of our region by joining us for a seasonal weekend Writers Hike. We'll explore the many ways that the outdoors can inspire our teaching and learning at local, county, and national parks in upstate New York.

Each participant will be eligible for a certificate documenting CTLE hours. To request a certificate after the event, email us at
