2017 Great Lakes Stewardship - Other Great Lakes Stewardship

Project Summary

The Water Resources Education Program engaged over 300 students from Northern Michigan middle schools in a foundation-laying program of watershed experiences that focused on local issues and stewardship of community water resources. Students were provided with water resources knowledge over the course of five in-class sessions, the majority of which also included community field trip sessions. This knowledge allowed students to plan and implement an action project that was designed to improve or solve a water resource issue in their community. Over the course of the program, teachers received training, resources, and tools to continue water-resources education in the future.
