The Center for Freshwater Research and Education was fortunate to be granted a highly competitive Bay Watershed Education and Training (NOAA B-WET) grant from the National Oceanic and Aeronautic Administration in the 2020-2021 school year.

Updates from this project and resources for educators will be posted here.

The NOAA B-WET grant was awarded to connect students and teachers to one another from three different areas of the Great Lakes Watershed:

  • JKL Bahweting School
  • Drummond Island Elementary
  • Dearborn Advanced Technology Academy

This grant allowed these students to get out into the field for hands-on experiences, including sampling for aquatic insects and other macroinvertebrates.
