River Explorer and Mussels in the Classroom

The Ohio River Foundation's two school offerings are: (1) River Explorer - Using a variety of nets to catch different creatures and then studying them in aquaria, and perform water quality testing and other activities,  students (grades 4-12) in greater Cincinnati investigate and learn about river ecology, pollution, and habitat protection; and (2) Mussels in the Classroom (MIC) where students are provided mussels and aquaria to care for, monitor, and learn about these ecologically important animals. Also, begun in fall 2020, as a part of a new partnership with Virginia Tech, ORF is re-publishing Russell the Mussel for distribution to MIC students in grades 4-6 to improve environmental literacy.
