Project Description

2019-2021 Our Place in the Great Lakes Watershed

Our Place in the Great Lakes Watershed
Lifelong stewardship is our goal. We know that teaching students facts about “their place” gives them the impetus to learn, explore, and appreciate their community. A year long phenological study of the local environment will help students see change over time, deepening their understanding of the Lake Superior watershed.

Projects include:
-school gardens
-bee hives
-school wide composting
-outdoor classroom
-disc golf course
-geology walkway
-schoolwide bird studies
