What's Included

Discover the uniqueness of river and stream habitats with Bruce as your guide. Wear your old sneakers and wade the streams with a net to see what lives in the pebbled bottom. Use a minnow trap to study small fish and create a classroom habitat to raise crayfish. The highlight of the week is a flat water canoe trip on a nearby river. Led by certified instructors from the River Classroom program, the morning begins with the students learning canoe and water safety, paddling techniques and the correct way to get into and out of a boat. Once on the water, a search for wildlife begins. Great Blue Herons, turtles, fish, small invertebrates and amphibians all can be seen in their natural habitat. There is one adult in every canoe with 2 students. Teacher: Bruce Fessenden
