Aquatic Ecosystems: Lake Michigan Ecology

ENTICE Workshop
November 4, 9 am - 3 pm

Lake Michigan is one of Illinois’ greatest natural resources. Come to this workshop and learn about the complex relationships between the lake and its inhabitants. We’ll learn about adaptations that are important for survival in the lake. Hands-on activities will be conducted and supplemental educational resources will be provided. Although targeted to teachers of grades kindergarten, one, three and four, other educators are welcome to register and attend the workshop but may need to adapt the materials as appropriate. Professional Development Hours are available.

This workshop is part of the ENTICE (Environment and Nature Training Institute for Conservation Education) program from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
