Project Description
(100-125 students / 2 Teachers)

Invasive species, habitat destruction, polluted runoff, and climate change are all potential threats to the Great Lakes and their watersheds (healthylakes.org/threats/). By monitoring a small part of the Lake Superior watershed, students can investigate whether these concerns are present in our school forest.
