The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium has been awarded $16,977 in grant funding from the REAP CEP. The Resource Enhancement & Protection (REAP) – Conservation Education Program (CEP) funding will support the River Museum’s Live Animal Outreach Expansion project.
This project will focus on acquiring, training, and introducing two raptors to the River Museum’s animal ambassador program in an effort to expand live animal outreach programming that will convey strong messages of conservation and a tangible and measurable contribution to the environmental health of our community.
These funds will provide significant support toward the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium’s mission to inspire stewardship by creating educational experiences where history and rivers come alive.
