Chicago Public Schools, District #299 - CIMBY Gets WET: Expanding the CIMBY (Calumet Is My Back Yard) Environmental Service Learning Project to include Great Lakes Bay Watershed Education and Training

CIMBY (Calumet Is My Back Yard) seeks to develop the next generation of environmental leaders by connecting the study of science with environmental stewardship and action. CIMBY students at 15 Chicago Public High Schools study ecological systems, biodiversity and its threats, and the Lake Michigan watershed then provide ecological restoration and stewardship at 13 natural sites in the Lake Calumet region of Chicago’s south side.
