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.

Frog Day at South Maple Elementary School

First grade students learn about the life cycle of frogs and the importance of saving wetland habitats.
Watershed Studies

Over 100 first grade students at South Maple Elementary School became frog experts at Frog Day!

As students rotated through different stations every fifteen minutes, they created crafts, got to actually see a frog and learned much about their amphibious friends. Justin Burchett, Huron Pines AmeriCorps Member serving as the Otsego Conservation District Education Coordinator, helped out by allowing kids the opportunity to touch a real frog, teach them about the life stages of a frog from egg to adulthood, talk about what frogs eat and explain the importance of water quality for frogs AND humans!

To learn more about frogs visit the Michigan Department of Natural Resources website here.
