Through the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (NE MI GLSI) network and partnership students are empowered to lead environmental stewardship projects in (and with) their communities.  These projects are supported by communities and educators who are adopting place based stewardship education (PBSE) strategies.  E-STEM learning is at the heart of the stewardship issues these students address and projects they champion.
