Save The River believes that education is the key to understanding the local environment around us.
To create a better understanding of the St. Lawrence River and the role it plays in our communities, Save The River has teamed up with North Country school districts to develop a special program that connects students directly to the River and instill life-long interest in the stewardship of the St. Lawrence River and its natural environment.
In The Schools is an exciting program that brings the River into the classrooms through hands-on curriculum activities. Lessons and activities include Haas the Great Blue Heron and My Little Book story times, Mussel Mania, Blue Planet, Tern Time, water quality labs, and our NEW light pollution curriculum. View all of our spring In The Schools programs in our educator’s guide.

Special thanks to the Fresh Sound Foundation, Ferguson Foundation, E.J. Noble Foundation, and Save The River members whose generous support has aided in the development of the Save The River In The Classroom program.
The buzz continues to grow and so does our education programming – check out our On The Water programs and our NEW Floating Classroom program here!
Save The River’s In the Classroom program has been designed to impact the community by enriching the depth of understanding and sensitivity about the River environment in school-aged children.
Over the last 10+ years, Save The River has been working with school teachers to create St. Lawrence River curriculum for local area classrooms. By providing this curriculum in the classroom, Save The River will educate the next generation about the importance of the St. Lawrence River and give students the tools to help protect this important resource for the future.
