About 10 GRAND Learning Network teachers — a Lansing-area group who utilizes non-traditional ways of teaching such as nature and habitat projects — participated in a MUCC OTG Jr. rabitat project at the Rose Lake State Game Area on August 17. The goal was to get teachers to see the unique benefits of hands-on learning through habitat and other wildlife projects.
Join Michigan United Conservation Clubs, more than 20 legislators, hunters, trappers and anglers for the first Great Lakes Day at the Capitol. The event’s purpose is to introduce MUCC’s members and the public to the policy work MUCC does. Also, it will give attendees a chance to meet with their local legislators and voice their concerns about Great Lakes issues like grass carp, Asian Carp, algal blooms, the Brandon Road Draft, etc.
