Dr. Calvin R. Fremling Floating Interpretive Center & Classroom
The Dr. Calvin R. Fremling Floating Interpretive Center & Classroom will be dedicated to creating a greater understanding of the broad multi-faceted nature of the Mississippi River and the people and places it touches. Our goal is to enhance our relationship to the River through research and education. Tens of thousands of elementary, secondary, college university students and community members will benefit from this resource which will provide a gateway to exploration and knowledge.
As scholars and as people who live and work near it, we see the river as a laboratory, a canvas, an archive, a stage, a text, a great complex thing worthy of contemplation, interpretation and protection.
The Dr. Calvin R. Fremling Floating Interpretive Center & Classroom project seeks to raise $200,000 in private support to build a distinctive and extraordinary boat offering "University-on-the-River" classes to learners of all ages. The goal is to have the boat in the water by spring, 2013.
See additional information about the boat (including a rendering), FAQ's, and a pledge form.
