Every fall, Wild River Academy organizes a group of young adults to paddle a major river in the U.S. to engage K-12 students in watershed education through an online interface. This educational model is called adventure learning; students have the opportunity to learn alongside our adventurers even though they are not physically present on the adventure. Explore this site to learn more about our most recent adventure learning expedition: Paddle Forward Mississippi River Expedition.
