BIG RIVER JOURNEY FIELD TRIPS
Big River Journey is a premier field trip program for Grades 3-5 focused on the Mississippi River within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area! Students view and learn about the river through onboard educational activities while cruising on a modern Padelford riverboat. Students choose to participate in three of five activity stations, including learning about aquatic invertebrates, river birds, stewardship, geology, and ecosystems. The National Park Service, Mississippi Park Connection, and other park partners host the program.
