2016 Great Lakes Stewardship - Other Great Lakes Stewardship

Project Details

The Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council utilized its Great Lakes Fishery Trust (GLFT) grant to plan and develop a pilot water resources education program for middle school science students and teachers in local Northern Michigan schools between April 2015 and January 2017. Area teachers were surveyed to determine program needs and interests with regard to water resource education at the middle school level. Collaboration with two regional GTSI hubs and local environmental organizations supported program development through the sharing of organizational documents, lessons and curriculum. Results from the survey and collaboration with the hubs resulted in the GLFT funding of a pilot program (WREP) 2017-2019 and the recruitment of 10 teachers, four schools and over 400 middle school students for participation in this new program.
