2018 Great Lakes Stewardship - Other Great Lakes Stewardship

Project Details

The Huron River Watershed Council’s (HRWC) Youth Education and Stewardship involved completing ecology and monitoring activities; applying science, engineering, and math subject matter; and developing life-long stewardship values for Great Lakes water resources.” Students participated in hands-on, placed-based science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in water quality education programs. Students were introduced to scientific principles, the application of classroom learning to real-life scenarios, and stewardship knowledge. 

In 2018 and 2019, approximately 35 teachers from 13 schools and 1,500 students participated in this education program. At a stream near the school, HRWC staff and volunteers led groups of students in a series of hands-on modules that each taught a different aspect of stream ecology. Students studied the physical characteristics of the streambed and banks and took precise measurements such as stream stage, water flow, temperature, and conductivity.
