Event Description

Opportunity for Middle and High School Level Formal and Nonformal Educators
Application deadline May 1, 2024


Wisconsin Sea Grant is excited to announce our 2024 in-person Great Lakes literacy professional learning workshop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


Over the course of two days, June 18 and 19, 2024 educators will work alongside each other, scientists, and Sea Grant educators to take a deep dive into aquatic invasive species. The workshop will explore how aquatic invasive species can impact our coasts, lakes, rivers and streams, using Milwaukee as our case study. One day will be a deep dive into the ecology and impacts of invasive species in a big lake, by collecting data from Lake Michigan aboard the R/V Neeskay. The second day, we plan to explore the ecology and invasive species in a local stream or lake. By exploring these freshwater systems, educators will learn how to bring prevention and monitoring concepts and strategies to their own learners.


Limited to 16 formal or nonformal educators who teach at the middle or high school level that are new or experienced to Great Lakes Literacy Principles.


June 18 and 19, 2024
