Classroom Programs

Note: We are not currently offering school programs. Please continue to check back and follow us on socials to stay up to date as we await their return! (Our Future Conservationists Initiative (FCI) is still up and running!)

Let us bring the Backcountry to you! Our on-site programs emphasize hands-on, nature-based science inquiry and are available year-round for schools, community groups, and camps. All classroom programs can also be run in your school yard or local park.

Classroom Topics

Who Polluted the Red River?

Your class will help us ruin a river to see how we can protect. Through an interactive demonstration, students will see how all of the small things that enter our waterways add up to a very polluted river!
