This week-long scientific exploration of Lake Erie will take place July 7-13, 2024, providing educators with a hands-on opportunity to explore microplastics, phytoplankton, benthic organisms, sediment, and other Lake Erie-specific topics alongside scientists and researchers working on these important issues.

The opportunity is organized by the Center for Great Lakes Literacy (CGLL) through a partnership with the US EPA Great Lakes National Program Office, with funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and hosted locally this year by the Pennsylvania Sea Grant and Ohio Sea Grant Programs.

CGLL is a collaborative effort led by Sea Grant educators throughout the U.S. Great Lakes watershed. CGLL fosters informed and responsible decisions that advance basin-wide stewardship by providing hands-on experiences, educational resources, and networking opportunities promoting Great Lakes literacy among an engaged community of educators, scientists, and youth.
