virtual Event taking place on
May 14, 2021
hosted by Northern Michigan University
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!
This year we will cater to the safety needs of all and host a virtual event. 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. Virtual symposium activities will include watershed research, investigations, artistic expression, team/leadership building skills, and recreational opportunities.
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.
