  • Save The River –“On The Water Field Trips” – “In 2009, Save The River launched a partnership with area school districts to bring the St. Lawrence River to the classroom, educating area school children about the St. Lawrence River, its fragility and the importance of its protection…….but in schools where many of the students have never been on the River, there is a lot of interest in doing just the opposite – bringing the classes to the River.”  Clayton Island Tours is a proud supporter of this program and each year we welcome hundreds of school children for “On The Water” field trips! Once on board the boat, students get to know the River – identifying Osprey nests and other bird species, searching in wetlands for beaver dams, learning to differentiate between living and non-living things, and so much more!  Frequently, our on the water field trips include visits to Rock Island Lighthouse State Park on Rock Island, Minna Anthony Nature Center and Wellesley Island State Park, Canoe Point State Park on Grindstone Island, and Grass Point State Park.  In 2017 New York State implemented “Connect Kids to Parks Field Trip Grant Program (Connect Kids) a field trip refund grant program connecting New York schoolchildren with nature and New York State history. https://parks.ny.gov/enviro…/connect-kids/grant-program.aspx    Contact Save The River at  (315) 686-2010, www.savetheriver.org or contact our Group Tour Department at 315-686-4280, www.claytonislandtours.com, or [email protected]
