DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -The Quad Cities is fortunate to live along 2,300 miles of opportunity. That’s what Living Lands & Waters calls the Mississippi River.

Living Lands & Waters’ new educational barge has a history that goes back nearly a century. “I wanted a working structure, something that had a story of its own,” said Chad Pregracke

The floating classroom caught the attention of the environmental advocacy platform Rivers Are Life, which produced a short film called “Study Aboard” that chronicles Living Land and Waters’ 2023 spring break program.
