Share with other teachers, students, parents and administrators!

Started in 1995, this remarkable biennial learning experience is for students and teachers who live within or are passionate about Lake Superior and its watershed (MI, WI, MN, & ON). We will keep you updated as planning continues to unfold during the pandemic. We know it takes a lot of lead time for schools to plan for student participation in multi-day educational programs, and for all to engage.

Direct any questions to Renee Jewett, the lead coordinator of the 2021 symposium, by email or by calling 906-227-2002.

We are looking forward to this year's unique event!
