Alcona Tigers are joining the effort to protect threatened and endangered species in northeast Michigan! Each student selects a threatened, endangered or species of special concern that can be found at Negwegon State Park. Upon researching and becoming experts on their chosen species, students will prepare a research paper and give a presentation to their fellow classmates.
This project allows students to educate their local community on the importance of biodiversity in our environment. Students will wrap this project up with a field trip to Negwegon State Park in the spring to learn more about the park, threatened and endangered species at the park and more. In order to educate the local community on the park and threatened and endangered species, The Alcona County Review is partnering with the students and will be publishing four of the species profiles in a special edition of the Alcona Review.
