Adventure Education: Mississippi River

An experiential education course, Adventure Education: Mississippi River develops students' understanding of place through the examination of the Mississippi River through multiple lenses from history to literature, commerce to education, biology to culture. Students examine physical, biological, cultural, historical, and economic forces through time as they seek to understand how people today relate to the river, and natural and human history that preceded those relationships. This class provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to embark upon and support a human-powered voyage of the Mississippi River that involves scientific data collection and education of K-12 students along the river route.
