The Living Lab is an urban riparian restoration site. The purpose of the Living Lab is to demonstrate and explore a variety of riparian restoration techniques; serve as an outdoor lab for students of all ages; and exhibit wildlife habitat improvements. There are trails and many interpretive signs.

The Living Lab is 1,500 feet of riverfront located on the outside bend of the Red River. It is suffering from slumping, erosion, tree loss, invasive plant species and a lack of wildlife habitat. Now owned by the City of Fargo and Cass County the site was previously used for a private residence, sheep grazing and hobby gardens. Many agencies, local units of government, volunteers and organizations are working with River Keepers to develop the Living Lab.
