Mill River Lab


The Mill River Wetland Committee, Inc. is an award winning nonprofit organization founded in 1966 to strengthen environmental science education through the study of river basin systems.

Mill River Lab includes a full curriculum for grades 3 through 6 that provides a unique, hands on approach to environmental science education. All elements of the program have been adopted as part of the science curriculum for the Fairfield public and parochial schools. River Lab provides classroom materials and activities for students, extensive training for study-trip guides, and professional development for teachers. At each grade level, classroom training is enhanced by study-trips to the Mill River and town estuaries. Each year, more than 400 volunteers guide approximately 3,300 children through more than 130 study-trips.
