The Reserve’s education program is a core component of our commitment to elevating the public connection to freshwater resources and the Lake Superior watershed and its estuaries. We utilize place-based and outdoor learning and effective environmental communication and media to support schools, educators and youth in learning about and experiencing Lake Superior. Combined with The Lake Superior Estuarium, an interpretive center open to the public, our education program ultimately provides a vital community resource by strengthening regional schools, encouraging collaboration between communities and supporting the local economy.
