• SMS MIT-e River Trip Information


    Every year MIT-e teams up with Grand Canyon Youth to bring students on a multi-day river trip on the San Juan River.  This year we are offering two trips, Upper for 6th and 7th grade students and Lower for 7th and 8th grade students.  The river trip is a great experience for our students to learn about the San Juan’s anthropology, geology, ecology, and much much more!
