Community Programs

Our community programs have been developed to educate and engage our local citizens in the exploration of Mill River.  You will have an opportunity to explore the work of a meandering river; identify and observe adaptations of plants and animals in the many Mill River habitats; and understand the complex relationships among living and nonliving things in the Mill River basin ecosystem.  You will be led by an experienced guide from MRWC's River-Lab Program, which has served the community for over 50 years.
