Points for service-learning professionals

Looking for an outing to offer?

storm drain stenciling outing supports earth science, water resources or similar classwork. Most take place in St. Paul, plus a few are led for schools or community groups in north and northeast Minneapolis, and each can be adjusted to any audience between 3rd grade and college-level.

Feel free to share FMR events

Please forward or post any FMR events on our calendar or e-newsletter to students. There's no need for special instructions. All sign-up info is listed on each of the event's webpages. Please note that students will need to register in advance and will need to sign up individually. 

If students have more than six or so hours to complete, please allow them to complete their hours at multiple organizations that Serve the River.

Please note

Natural cycles don't always sync well with the academic calendar. Most FMR events must take place between late April and November, and there are specific times of year to remove certain invasive species, gather native seeds, etc. 

We can't always verify student hours after an event. Instead, we offer a form for students to bring to the event they volunteered at that staff can complete at the end of each activity.
