River Adventure Club

River Adventure Club

You live in a part of the world unlike any other, the Driftless Area. The Driftless Area is a pocket of land that was unglaciated during the last ice age roughly 16,000 years ago, creating the unique topography and hills found in the tri-states and upper Mississippi River Valley.

Now that you know what makes this place so awesome, let’s have some fun and go exploring!

Join the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H for monthly adventures! We’ll explore the wonderful wild places and people in the Driftless Area.  Partake in real conservation work with professionals in the field and become river stewards.  

These programs are for students in 6th-11th grades and their parents. As part of this club, you will be asked to think of yourself as a person who is responsible for the care and management of our natural resources, a.k.a. a steward. As a steward, you will work with your club leaders to develop a solution to some of the problems you observe while exploring the Driftless Area—solutions that can be tested, displayed, and even serve as a project for fair and beyond. 
Take a walk on the wild side with the River Adventure Club.

Meetings run from 5-7 p.m. and exact locations are to be determined.
