K-12 Education

Outdoor Investigations Programs
The Muskegon Conservation District has partnered with the Muskegon Environmental Research and Education Society (MERES) and the Alcoa Foundation to offer hands-on, inquiry-based outdoor experiences for students of all ages. Students can take their science lessons outdoors to the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve to investigate pond, riverbank, marsh, and forest habitats. As students investigate the ecology of the preserve, they also learn how their own actions can impact their local environment. Groups can also participate in stewardship projects at the preserve during their field trips.

Classroom Presentations
We offer classroom presentations for K-12 students on topics including stormwater management, groundwater, and water quality. These interactive programs can be adapted for any age group, and additional natural resources topics are available upon request.

Please call 231-828-5097 for more info.
