The Collaboratory in Active Regenerative Ecologies (C.A.R.E.) is a bioregion-specific and radically innovative project that aims to invite educators to a summer residency in the Hudson River Estuary, focusing on immersive pedagogies.
The programme’s overall goal is to learn with the estuary and from ourselves as co-inhabitants in the bioregion.
This programme has earned a Science and Resilience Institute Fellowship for Research Development (2019), a Public Humanities Fellowship (2020-2021) from Humanities New York that allowed further development of its many parts toward launching it on summer 2021, and a SEED Grant from HNY.
This summer’s immersion was possible thanks to the generosity of Noelle Thurlow and Resilience Adventures.
Please watch the PDF below for some details on what this first phase looked like and a long list of allies that supported us throughout this multiday journey.
We are optimistic and hopeful that we will be able to bring more educators to similar experiences in the estuary in following summers. We welcome support of any kind and type–please write to us if you resonate with this call to continue >> email@example.com | firstname.lastname@example.org

In the summer of 2020 the programme benefited with the labor of two interns from Brooklyn College’s Urban Sustainability, Philosophy and Environmental Studies programs, Jamie Hitzel and Brandon Carrillo.
Jamie’s labor for the summer consisted, amongst many other things, in putting her mapping skills to work. Without her the following eco-friendly organizations and people along the Hudson River Valley would not live in the same map. Please feel free to use it, share it, and if you see fit to add someone who’s work should be here and is missing, please send us a note!
