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.

Students use chemical and aquatic invertebrate tests to determine health of the Thunder Bay River
Watershed Studies

Students recently completed water quality testing training in Alpena at the NOAA center learning chemical and macro-invertebrate testing methods. They also boarded the glass-bottom boat, Lady Michigan, and explored Thunder Bay discussing fisheries, aquatic invasive species, and open water testing equipment. The students finished the trip with an introduction to the area's Maritime Heritage by viewing shipwrecks in the bay. They will use this education to collect and submit data to support the overall watershed study.
