This year, the Institute will again bring 20 teachers from across Michigan together to explore place-based education opportunities and make connections with resource professionals and established community projects. In exchange for attending this professional development opportunity, teachers receive $500 to develop a place-based education project at their school. Using Alcona, MI as the centralized hub for the 2017 institute, participants will be introduced to a wealth of projects supported through the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative network.
