Give your students a hands-on connection to science and their community with Adopt-a-Beach.

This service learning program lets you teach outdoors at your local Great Lakes shoreline. Students learn about the environment while they investigate beach health, remove litter, and enter their findings into an online database.

For some students, this may be the first time they’ve ever seen the Great Lakes!

We’ll give you:

  • Help finding a beach to adopt
  • Data collection forms
  • Online training
  • Lesson plans for before, during and after your field trip

Want to get involved? Learn about becoming a team leader, or email our education department.
