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.

Inland Lakes - Sturgeon River Stream Monitoring

Students are conducting water analysis of the Sturgeon river, while learning about water Chemistry.
Watershed Studies

Students from Inland Lakes Secondary School are monitoring the water quality of the Sturgeon River. This includes conducting both aquatic macro-invertebrate studies and chemical water quality tests. They then use this information to understand the impacts their community is having on the river. This allows for discussions and learning about what changes need to be made in the community in order to maintain a healthy river.
