Thriving Communities and a Healthy Environment
In 2014, the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative received a two-year grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to support in select Michigan schools a collection of place-based education projects that focused on stewardship. Participating teachers and staff from our hubs worked with the GLSI’s central staff to create a media-rich case study about each project.
In addition, we wrote two white papers.
- Benefits of Place-based Stewardship Education (PDF)
- Implementing Place-based Stewardship Education Across the Landscape (PDF) Understanding how place-based stewardship education varies across different grade levels (elementary, middle, high school) and community settings (rural, suburban, small town, urban).
