HOSTED BY NORTHLAND COLLEGE,
The purpose of the symposium is to inspire and motivate teachers and students in grades 8-12 to become stewards of Lake Superior and the Great Lakes!
The Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute is proud to be hosting the 15th biennial symposium. Students from across the watershed are invited to join us in a 4 day 3 night experience held in Ashland WI. Participants will share knowledge and skills, address current issues that challenge the health of the Lake Superior basin, and experience an appreciation of the history and culture of the Lake Superior region. Symposium activities will include keynote presentations, field trips, artistic expression, team building games, dancing, and fun!
Students in 8th - 12th grade are invited to attend the Lake Superior Youth Symposium with a teacher from their school who is registered for this event.
