Kids River Expo Print E-mail


Group-Shot This year the Kids River Expo is back and better than ever! Due to an increasing amount of interest from Missoula area teachers, the Kids River Expo will take place over two days; Thursday September 26th and Friday September 27, 2013. Students will rotate through 6 learning stations led by: Fish Wildlife and Parks, the Missoula Water Quality District, Montana Audubon, the Missoula Weed District, the Watershed Education Network and Trout Unlimited. Participants will wrap up the day by choosing a service learning activity to complete with their class. If you are interested in joining us at the Kids River Expo please contact Ellie at 542-0539 ex. 200. We hope to see you there!

  

 

 
 
 
 
  Engaging tomorrow's stewards
 
In 2012, the Coalition organized an inaugural hands-on education event for 200+ 6th graders at McCormick Park, an easily accessible park in downtown Missoula on the Clark Fork River. The Kids River Expo features a fun-filled day spent identifying native fish and wildlife, devising "pollution solutions," examining water bugs, and learning "leave no trace" principles. Students cap off the day with a "Kids Cleanup," picking up trash along the banks of the Clark Fork River in downtown Missoula. The Coalition also provides pre- and post-event classroom visits to teach students introductory watershed science concepts.

Washington Middle School students reflect on the Expo:

"If we don't take care of the river, we will have a unhealthy food chain. The health of the river affects all living things."

"It's important to keep the Clark Fork clean, so fish have a cleaner environment. Plus, we like to swim in it, and we don't want toxic drinking water."

"If we don't take care of the Clark Fork we will have a poor quality of life, and we will have a dirty river running through our town."
