Journey down the Mississippi River stops to teach area kids

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A long trip down the Mississippi stops to teach our kids about the adventure.

The non-profit Ocean Adventure Rowing and Education spoke at Summit Elementary School in La Crosse Monday.

It's a break from their 90 day journey paddling down the Mississippi River. They offer firsthand experience from the river for the students.

"And all the fun stuff you get to see. The bugs, the frogs, the critters, the eagles, but then also the way that the river works and how vital it is to La Crosse and also the people up river from La Crosse and all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico," said Greg Spooner, of Ocean Adventure Rowing and Education.

The group is making stops like this at schools all along the Mississippi.
