Copper Country Intermediate School District - Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative

The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) will involve 16 school-community teams composed of 85 teachers, 50 community partners, and 2500 students from Houghton, Baraga, and Keweenaw counties of Michigan in environmental stewardship activities in the Lake Superior watershed. The major goal of LSSI is to prepare K-12 students to become knowledgeable citizens, concerned about the Great Lakes, and actively engaged in stewardship activities that will contribute to the health, conservation, and future protection of the Great Lakes and their watersheds. Four over-arching themes guide the implementation of the LSSI: developing a connection to place, responsibility to community, partnerships between teachers, students and community members to address community needs, and active stewardship of the Lake Superior watershed.
