River Quest is bringing education out on the water again

Nearly 1000 6th graders from around the region are on a floating classroom this week, attending River Quest.

It's back in-person again, after a break due to COVID, and kids get on board the Vista Star.

The Vista's general manager, Colleen Smith, told us, "We've had two dynamite weather days. It's exciting. For us, we hear people return, and say the last time I was on this boat was during River Quest. Some of our deck hands, even."

Students learn about the St. Louis River estuary, the harbor, and all kinds of topics related to the waterfront.

There are stations on land as well, inside the DECC.

Companies sponsor the event and provide information at the different stations.
