Mill River Wetland Committee, Inc. (MRWC) is a Fairfield-based non-profit organization devoted to strengthening environmental science education and developing general public understanding through the study of river basin systems. Through participation in classroom learning activities and study-trips, students in grades 3 through 7 and parent volunteer guides are exposed to the science behind how our natural environment works. MRWC writes and provides teacher manuals, student books and classroom activities, creates and provides extensive training for volunteer study-trip guides, and conducts the outdoor study-trips to the Mill River or the town estuary.
This project meets Next Generation Science Standards, building on watershed concepts with study-trips to the river and estuary.
The curriculum resource is available on the Mill River Wetland Committee website.
