Grand Traverse Stewardship Initiative

The Grand Traverse Stewardship Initiative (GTSI) is in its sixth year of providing leadership and resources to support place-based, community-focused learning experiences for students, teachers, and local community partners in the Grand Traverse region. This year we are supporting the efforts of six GTSI teams, consisting of 30 teachers and their students, who are dedicated to learning about and promoting freshwater stewardship. Read our story.
