Young people can achieve amazing results when they have great teachers and help from the community. With support from the Center for Great Lakes Literacy and Pennsylvania Sea Grant, 10 teachers in the region have involved 834 students in stewardship projects this year. The results include: better stormwater management, improved habitat for little brown bats and monarch butterflies, less plastic waste and cleaner beaches and communities. Learn about the teachers, their students and their work on this week's NIE page.
