About the River Institute

The River Institute was established in 1994 as a unique community partnership involving the Mohawks of Akwesasne, government, education, business and industry. Its mandate is to conduct environmental research, education, and outreach with a focus on the Great Lakes / St. Lawrence River ecosystem.
