“Thank you for a great trip. The kids really loved it.” 2013

“This is one of the best opportunities available for getting every student involved and excited about the health and protection of the Great Lakes.” 2013

“The teachers were good with students. The trip covered a broad group of topics all dealing with our Bay. For many of my students it was their first trip on the bay or river. We are studying waves until now and the trip even fit into that topic.” 2013

“Great learning experience as usual. All volunteers were outstanding and students loved them. They were also very knowledgeable.” 2013

“I watched their faces + noted their level of participation. Many of my students were engaged more than for the past 9 weeks in class – WOW, Thanks!” 2012

“This was a great trip, the kids really enjoyed it and the staff had everything very well organized. Thanks so much.” 2012

"Setting up the program to use with my students, going through it with them, and finally culminating our study with the cruise on the Appledore IV has been one of the most enjoyed and significant science expeditions I’ve ever taken with a group of students. Thank you is not enough for making this possible for us.”

Patti Marks-Christmas, St. Thomas School - 2012

“As I’m sure you hear, this was a wonderful opportunity for our chemistry students to participate in research. It was great to see them actively sampling and testing their water samples and to learn to do that on a boat in Lake Huron when many of them had never been on either!” 2012

"The students, myself, and the chaperones had a wonderful time aboard the Schooner Appledore. It was a great experience for the students and really reinforced the 7th grade GLECS that are taught in the classroom. It allowed the students to get hands on experience outside the 4 walls of the classroom. Highly recommended." 2011
