Educating the Next Generation About the Great Lakes Ecosystem!
NOAA Great Lakes Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) provides funds to support experiential environmental education throughout the Great Lakes watershed in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Funded projects support meaningful watershed educational experiences (PDF) to K-12 students and teachers.
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. The 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.
