St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A 3,300-square-foot barge was christened on the Mississippi River Friday afternoon in downtown St. Louis designed to teach children about the living world on a floating classroom.

Living Lands & Waters will host day-long workshops on biology, history and navigation of waterways. Since 2003, LL&W has held 92 teacher workshops for more than 1,700 teachers and educators.

Living Lands & Waters was founded in 1998 as a not-for-profit, and engages thousands of volunteers every year for river cleanups, tree plantings and hands-on environmental education workshops.
