Great Lakes Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET)
Educating the Next Generation About the Great Lakes Ecosystem!
NOAA Great Lakes Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) program funds locally relevant, authentic experiential learning for K-12 students and educators through Meaningful Watershed Experiences (MWEEs).
Great Lakes B-WET region supports projects serving students and educators in the Great Lakes watershed in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, and Wisconsin.
Recognizing that an educated community is the key to understanding and sustaining the Nation's ocean and coastal environments, NOAA has developed B-WET into a national program. Great Lakes B-WET regional grants are funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, supporting experience-based learning opportunities for youth to promote Great Lakes stewardship.
