The 2nd Annual Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative Conference, a Great Lakes Basin-wide gathering on place-based education, is scheduled for Nov. 13-14 in Lansing. The meeting will bring together practitioners and teachers from formal and non-formal education, local partners from communities across the region, and other organizations that provide vital leadership and resources to the cause of developing environmental stewards of the Great Lakes and its ecosystems.

Michigan Sea Grant will host two presentations — one on place-based education opportunities using case studies from northeast Michigan, and another on the 4-H Great Lakes and Natural Resources Camp, a summer place-based learning opportunity for youth and educators.

The two-day conference additionally features keynote speakers, presentations about promising practices, panel discussions, forums for communities of practice, access to resources about place-based education, and many opportunities to network.
