Students participating in a hands-on erosion lesson.

FMR offers a variety of indoor programs to support educators who want to connect their students with the Mississippi River. Experienced FMR staff can visit 4th-12th-grade classes in St. Paul, north or northeast (and sometimes south) Minneapolis as a guest speaker to conduct hands-on activities to learn about watersheds, runoff pollution, erosion and sedimentation, river ecosystems, invasive species and other water quality topics. Each lesson is designed to address state academic standards.

• Are best suited for groups of 20-30 people, 4th grade and up
• Range from 50 minutes to 1.5 hours in length
• Are age-appropriate and can be customized for your group
• Can be scheduled year-round

Teachers often organize a storm drain stenciling outing as a follow up to one (or more) of these presentations. Stenciling reservations are accepted anytime, however, the outing needs to take place mid-April through October (weather permitting).

Get started today!
