The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative could not be as successful as it is without the dedicated support from all of our partners, including schools, government agencies, non profits, and businesses. They are the people that make these projects happen! Click the link below to see a list of all the partners involved in NEMI GLSI.

Inland Lakes- Energy and Habitat project

Students in 5th-7th grade will be looking at environmentally friendly energy and landscaping in Habitat for Humanity homes
Sustainable SchoolsCommunity and Economic Development

5th-6th grade students at Inland Lakes Elementary have learned about some native plant species for Michigan.  They then designed a flower garden to plant at a local habitat for humanity home.  They will be involved in the planting of this garden at a home in Northern Michigan.  In addition, 7th graders are learning about energy efficient homes and what it take to be a LEEDS home.  They are modeling their ideal home construction and will hopefully be able to visit the current habitat for humanity home as it is being built.  Eventually,  they volunteer some time at the house as well.
