IISG’s education team will be leading a number of training sessions and workshops for teachers this summer, including an upcoming Lake Michigan B-WET Workshop June 24-27. 

The workshops are designed to provide educators with hands-on training in Great Lakes science, as well as material for their lesson planning and curricula to take back to the classroom with them. Specifically, the B-WET workshop will “promote the stewardship, protection, and restoration of coastal areas in the Lake Michigan watershed.”

The B-WET workshop will include presentations on watersheds, Great Lakes literacy principles and activities, water quality testing, hands-on planting of native wetland plants, climate and weather activities, and more.
