East Lee Campus


Project Description:
The Our Legacy Project focused on students studying, assessing, and supporting the health of Plaster Creek. Because East Lee is located along the Creek, students were able to monitor the water quality, soil quality, and biodiversity of their local waterways. They investigated how the land use of their local urban environment has a lasting impact on the natural environment.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students created a presentation that discussed water quality issues in Michigan (Flint, Rockford, and the Nestle company pumping water from the White Pine Springs). These presentations highlighted the need for improved water quality for both communities and the environment.
