On Thursday, July 28, educators working with youth in grades 6 - 12 are invited to enjoy the day immersed in educational activities that explore the Great Lakes and Great Lakes issues! This workshop will be held at the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

Participants will try their hands at a variety of activities from the Alliance for the Great Lakes' newly updated Great Lakes in My World educational curricula. Great Lakes in My World K-8 offers 80 indoor and outdoor activities -- covering lakes, sand dunes, wetlands, human communities, history and geology –all as they relate to our Great Lakes! Great Lakes in My World 9-12 focuses on coastal habitats, restoration, careers and stewardship. This workshop will involve activities both outside and indoors. It will demonstrate lessons from the 9-12 guide, but reference the K-8 lessons that cover similar topics. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive a copy of the curriculum appropriate to their grade level to take home.

This program is offered to both formal educators and non-formal educators including pre-service teachers, naturalists, scout leaders, youth group leaders, home schooling parents, and any educators who work with youth between 6th and 12th grade. Cost for the workshop is $40. This event is co-sponsored by Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the Alliance for the Great Lakes, Dunes Learning Center, and the Great Lakes Research and Education Center.  Pre-registration is required and registration is limited.  To register, visit  before July 21.
