RAIL Project

Aquatic macroinvertebrates are such an interesting way to bring a hands-on inquiry-based activity into your classroom by letting your student gain an insight into concepts and processes that occur within the mysterious world of a stream ecosystem.

You will find any resources to get the RAIL Project started in your district as well a link to how our project has grown into reaching out to the community with our Annual Allendale Community Field Day here.  If you find that you are interested in joining up with the RAIL Project, please let us know.
