In On the River we follow the journey of brother and sister duo, Max and Ellie, as they try to determine if their local river is healthy. Ellie wants to earn her Biology Adventurer River Badge with her brother Max. But Max doesn’t think he’s any good at science. Can Max overcome his nerves and earn his adventurer badge, too?
