The Pennsylvania State University - Great Lakes - Great Stewards Environmental Education Project

“Great Lakes - Great Stewards” combines Earth Action service learning with Pennsylvania Sea Grant, NOAA and GLRI-funded resources to provide 600 middle and high school students and 25 teachers from low-income schools in Northwest Pennsylvania with science-based experiential learning on multiple watershed water quality issues. This one-year project, which focuses on emerging contaminants; storm water management; invasive species; and wetland and habitat restoration, includes a variety of teacher/student trainings, classroom learning, shipboard and field activities. These experiences will culminate in the development of service learning projects. Thousands more students and community members will learn about these issues through the PA Sea Grant/Erie Times-NIE weekly newspaper page, student press conferences, assemblies, and public presentations
