Booking Spring Trips 2014
Looking back at 2013, RiverWatch had our most successful year ever! Almost 10,000 students spent a day with us—a 21% increase over last year—learning about rivers, water quality science and our delicate ecosystem.
In order to continue offering this high-quality program to Alberta students, the following changes will be introduced in the upcoming 2014 Spring Season:
• Base raft capacity will increase from 14 to 15 students
• The base raft fee for up to 15 students will be $570 plus GST
• The fee for additional 1-3 students per raft will be $38 plus GST each
The changes reflect a $3 increase per student—our first fee increase since 2007. These changes will ensure alignment with current class sizes and cover increased costs associated with program delivery.
To ensure affordability for students, RiverWatch continues our fundraising efforts and through the generous support of our donors, this year’s fees are the result of a 50% subsidy.
RiverWatch remains committed to providing an exceptional science experience for Alberta teachers and students. We look forward to booking time slots for Spring 2014 in the next few weeks.
