The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) is part of a larger statewide initiative, The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI), which seeks to expand K-12 classrooms and improve communities across Michigan through community-based learning. The GLSI was established and funded in November 2007 by the Great Lakes Fishery Trust with the support of the Wege Foundation.

LSSI is grateful for funding from the following partners:
