Inspired by the experiential learning theory, our educational workshops bring students to the river to learn about environmental issues related to river health. Through hands-on learning activities, active experimentation and reflection, students grasp important concepts such as the value of clean water, waste reduction, and recycling. These free workshops, held aboard our floating classroom,​ are truly a one-of-a-kind experience for students AND teachers!
