The 2019 Lake Huron Place-based Stewardship Education Summer Teacher Institute has shifted inland this year. Our focus will still be Great Lakes Stewardship but drawing attention to how our forests are a vital contributor to the protection and preservation of our Great Lakes: Forest to Fish. Participants will explore the old growth forest and history of logging at Hartwick Pines. We will then travel a short distance to the AuSable River to explore the connection between the forest and our watershed, including forest and river succession. We will discuss stream bank preservation both in forest and urban settings, the influence of soil and investigate the forest/river macroinvertebrate food web.  Finally, we will be stepping back to consider how land use impacts our communities and how some areas are working to find the balance between preservation and recreation. Our two packed days will wrap with time for teachers to develop their plan for how they will be using their $500 project stipend.
