Project Summary

The Detroit Leadership and Environmental Education Program builds the next generation of Great Lakes environmental and conservation leaders and stewards from frontline communities most impacted by environmental racism. Through a combination of watershed citizen science, an ecological educational curriculum, career mentorship, and outdoor experiences like fishing, camping, hiking and foraging we work with Detroit high school students to foster the deep, passionate relationships with the Great Lakes that fuel a lifetime of leadership.
