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.

Watershed StudiesSustainable SchoolsCommunity and Economic Development

Students participating in this program are involved in numerous "green" projects across the school. They have developed a greenhouse that they helped both design and construct. The space will be used to cultivate native plants, and students will learn about the plants and gardening along the way. In addition, the students started and continue to manage a recycling program in their school, working with all grade levels to make it as effective as possible. The class is encouraged to constantly be developing and working on new projects.


You can learn more here, on the project's student updated wiki-page.
