Project Summary

West Michigan teachers and their students will gain awareness of the value of their local watershed to human and non-human communities within the Lake Michigan Basin through participation in direct experiences with local waterways. Using a place-based approach to examining the upstream and downstream impact of human interactions and interventions on the watershed, students will work with local environmental partners to design and implement projects focused on improving and protecting the watershed for all.
