MRWC:An Environmental Educational Program
MRWC is a non-profit environmental education organization.
Our purpose is to promote environmental education through the study of river basin systems.Our goals are:
The River-Lab program, a unique science-based program of environmental study for grades 3-6, has been part of the science curriculum in Fairfield schools since 1969. At each grade level, classroom teaching is augmented by study-trips to the Mill River and the town's estuaries. These trips are led by trained volunteer guides who form the Mill River Wetland Study Group.
- To establish river basin education as a standard part of curriculum within the intermediate grade levels in public, private, and parochial schools.
- To promote community commitment to sound river basin management.
- To encourage community stewardship of Fairfield river basin systems.
MRWC's objectives are to continue operating the River-Lab Program as a model of river basin education, in cooperation with the Fairfield public & other participating schools, and to publish the program for wider use.
Please join us and the participating schools in supporting the Fairfield River-Lab Program model, which requires part-time staffing as well as many
