Students continue to benefit from the invaluable knowledge

For over 25 years, the Quidi Vidi/Rennie’s River Development Foundation (QVRRDF) has been providing environmental education programming for our community.  Through The Fluvarium, over 11,000 students each year are inspired to discover and experience life up close in the freshwater ecosystems.  This year, due to the global pandemic, we are proud to present Virtual School Programs!  These programs will allow the students to continue to benefit from the invaluable knowledge they gain from their annual fieldtrips to The Fluvarium, while also staying safe.

Due to the effects of COVID-19 on the world, The Fluvarium needs your help to keep afloat now more than ever!  It is vitally important that we can continue our mission to educate our youth on the importance of preserving and protecting freshwater ecosystems.

At this time of year, we reach out to our community asking for a commitment of $35 to become a Friend Of The River for 2021. Through the generosity of our Friends, QVRRDF ensures the continued operation of The Fluvarium, and allows the foundation to carry out our mandate:

To inspire the protection, the conservation and the enhancement of freshwater ecosystems.


If you wish to offer further support you can swim up our Fish Ladder Of Sponsorship!  This sponsorship enables us to invite community groups to participate in our educational programs by supplementing the cost of participation. These groups include schools, community centers, Girl Guides, Scouts, seniors’ groups, and less fortunate families.

Sponsorship allows us to financially supplement visits by children’s groups in your community. With your help we can continue providing environmental education and improving our operations in 2021. It’s easy to become a sponsor, just choose a level of sponsorship !
