Alcona Community High School students learn about soils from Jack Guy.



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.

Alpena High School - Shipwreck Alley

Students will collect the oral histories, help preserve artifacts, and help develop an educational exhibit to encourage stewardship and preservation of the Lake Huron fishery.
Watershed StudiesCommunity and Economic Development

This project will provide students an opportunity to make a worthwhile contribution to the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. They will not only learn many of the same methods employed by sanctuary archaeologists and historians, but they will apply this learning to produce an exhibit that will be displayed and shared with the public. Students will be able to work with these professionals and explore science and history outside the classroom and beyond the textbook.

Watch Mr. Caplis speak about Shipwreck Alley on WBKB11 Early Morning.
