Project Summary

Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) is looking to expand and enhance their programming, which will allow a large audience to experience hands-on watershed education. The GRPM Classroom with a Current will continue to develop as a hub of information related to watershed ecology. In addition, new laboratory-based programming as well as summer camp adventures will explore watershed concepts. By incorporating artifacts and object-based discovery into watershed education the GRPM will provide a local context to Great Lakes watershed themes.
