Read the 2015 River Rat Report for more details

The River Rat Program is an ongoing and flexible program to engage students and teachers from local public schools with river preservation and environmental education programs. BRWC members and science teachers get students involved with active programs such as the Fish Ladders, River Stewardship, Volunteer clean-up opportunities, Water Quality, and real time visits to and in the rive! Students get a hands-on experience on the river and then continue in the classroom for a real-world application of what they learn, in the form of positive changes in how we use and view the river. Schools that we have partnered with in the past include: Cumberland High School, Central Falls High School, Woonsocket High School, Mount Saint Charles Academy, McCourt Middle School, Dr. Earl F. Calcutt Middle School.
