Book Your Fall School Trip Now!

RiverWatch Science Floats – Your Classroom on the River! 

**We are now accepting school bookings for fall 2022! Just fill out the form below and a member of our program team will get back to you!**

Our award-winning education programs align DIRECTLY with the curriculum and have been a go-to resource for Alberta secondary science classes since 1995. With an amazing focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), students explore their local river ecosystem aboard rafts equipped as mobile water quality laboratories.

A day of rafting takes the student classroom into the real world to experience an interesting mix of ecology, wildlife, history, geology, engineering, technology, industry, water quality monitoring and data collection.

Our programs showcase science in ways that students have never seen before and created an experience they’ll never forget!

  • **FALL FLOAT SEASON** Our fall 2022 school science float dates are tentatively set from mid-September to the end of October. Please select a range of dates below. Our coordinator will confirm specific/final dates with you in late August or early September. All river floats are dependent on weather.
  • **SCIENCE CURRICULUM LINKS** What’s the best way to study a river? We think it’s by taking science classes on a float trip aboard large inflated rafts fully-equipped as floating laboratories! Check out our junior high and high school course and unit curriculum links HERE.
  • **SAFETY** Safety and participant comfort are the first priority in all our programs. Check out all our safety protocols HERE.
