This project provides meaningful watershed experiences in regional watersheds, including Lake Michigan, to 30 local junior high and high school students during a two-week summer camp. Students will become watershed ambassadors following investigation of each watershed via canoe, pontoon, schooner, submarine, and on foot. Students will interact with people whose careers are related to water health. Students will also conduct service projects that directly impact the health of the local waterways and will create their own methods of community outreach. In addition, approximately 370 sixth grade students will also focus on aquatic invasive species issues during their fall school forest experience.
