Learning About the Mississippi and How You Can Help

In December, our middle school teachers and students partnered with Capitol Region Watershed DistrictHamline University’s Center for Global Environmental Education, and Wilderness Inquiry to learn more about the Mississippi River and how it is connected to urban communities, including our own neighborhood.

You can help as well!
