Lake Huron Watershed Place-Based Stewardship Education Summer Teacher Institute

Monday, August 14, 2017
Thursday, August 17, 2017

The Lake Huron Watershed Place-Based Stewardship Education Summer Teacher Institute is designed so teachers:

  • Make connections to the Great Lakes through Great Lakes Literacy
  • Address and improve their understanding of Michigan’s education expectations through quality hands—on, place-based efforts
  • Gain pedagogical process training for place-based stewardship education
  • Meet the needs of the community and strengthen partnerships between schools and their community

This year, the Institute will bring together 15 teachers from across Michigan together to explore place-based stewardship education opportunities and make connections with resource professionals and established community projects. In exchange for attending this professional development opportunity, teachers receive $500 stipend to develop a place-based education stipend at their school. Lodging and most meals are also included for educators.


Using Alpena, MI as the centralized hub for the 2017 institute, participants will be introduced to a wealth of place-based stewardship education efforts supported through the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative network.
