About Us

The Mill River Wetland Committee, Inc. is an award winning nonprofit organization founded in 1967 to strengthen environmental education through the study of river basin systems. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, MRWC promoted purchase of open space along the Mill River in Fairfield, Connecticut, and took a leading role in the defense of endangered wetlands. Concern for our environmental future prompted the launching of River-Lab, a unique hands-on program of environmental study for grades 3-6 in all public schools in Fairfield. All elements of the program have been adopted as part of the science curriculum.
