How to Make A Contribution to LSSI

The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) is part of the statewide Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) launched by the Great Lakes Fishery Trust in January 2008 with financial support from the Wege Foundation. The Western Upper Peninsula Center for Science, Mathematics and Environmental Education is the grant recipient.

2016 marks LSSIís 9th year. Each year, LSSI needs to raise a greater portion of its operating costs. LSSI needs to raise $75,000 in cash or donations to receive continued funding from the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative for 2017-2019.

Currently LSSI engages:

o       16 Schools in Houghton, Keweenaw & Baraga counties

o       98 Teachers in grades K-12

o       3,562 Students

o       105 Community Partners in Houghton, Baraga, Gogebic and
  Keweenaw Counties.
