St. Louis River Quest

Making the world more understood

The St. Louis River Quest is an annual event that draws middle-schoolers from all over the Duluth-Superior region to come and learn all about what happens above and below the water’s surface.

An icon for every learning station

The St. Louis River Quest has hosted numerous learning stations for for many years teaching everything from bacteria to sustainable forestry. With this new iteration of the website, we wanted to give each station its own unique icon that remained consistent with overall aesthetic of the site but brought in some creative visuals.

Good design starts with a good process

Adventure on any device

The St. Louis RiverQuest aims to be accessible to all of the elementary kids that participate and even the adults involved. So with that, we had to make sure that our interface worked on any device

Visionary leaders launched this program a quarter century ago to help young people become more civically engaged, more environmentally conscious.

We continue to build on that momentum by helping students understand the impact we each have on the environmental health and the economic vitality of this estuary.
