Working with Educators
In 2009, Save The River launched a new partnership with area schools districts to bring the St. Lawrence River to the classroom, educating area school children about the St. Lawrence River, its fragility and the importance of its protection.
Through the Save The River in the Schools program, participating school districts send interested educators to participate in a three day training session, where educators learn about Save The River's key program areas, and then work collaboratively with other teachers to design new environmental education curricula for their classroom.
Special thanks to the Fresh Sound Foundation, the EJ Noble Foundation and the Ferguson Foundation for providing grant support for this initiative.
