River Valley Charter School

As a developing site, the River Valley Charter School counts on Ellen Link to lead an outdoor classroom/field experience for 6th grade students. Because of COVID-19, classes at the site are conducted in an outdoor classroom at Plum Island's Parker River National Wildlife Refuge.Here, students are doing a "survey" of projects including analysis of marine debris, eelgrass restoration, studies of phenology and invasive species, and a study of American eels. Throughout the course, students will engage in interviews and work towards producing physical deliverables for the refuge, other students, parents and community stakeholders.
