Alpena-Montmorency-Alcona Educational Service District received a capacity-building grant through the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative to continue a discussion in the region about how best to promote and support Great Lakes and aquatic educational programs for K-12 students.

Thirty-five people (including 11 teachers) representing more than 30 different organizations, affiliations and businesses discussed the need for environmental education leading to stewardship.
