Join leading sustainability and place-based education experts for a weekend long eco-adventure on Michigan’s Beaver Island sponsored by The Beaver Island Music Festival, We Are The Forest, and Tara’s Meadow.
Heralded as a “keystone species”, science and planetary solutions experts have begun to pay serious attention to the ingenuous methods of the mighty beaver. This eco-adventure is designed for K-12 teachers and educators and is focused on integrating place based learning (PBL) into the classroom. We’ll explore and learn sustainable eco-solutions currently being implemented across the globe, as we get up close and personal with the biodiversity and design genius of beaver dams. Masters of habitat creation and ecosystem restoration, what better place to learn from these natural problem solvers than the unmatched beauty of Michigan’s own Beaver Island.
