Last Thursday the Inland Seas Education Association, a non-profit organization based in Suttons Bay that is dedicated to science education on the Great Lakes, welcomed its 90,000th student aboard the 77′ schooner Inland Seas. The 90,000th student was from St. Francis Assisi in Ann Arbor. Executive Director and Captain Tom Kelly, said:
“This is a really exciting day for Inland Seas and the students of St. Francis. We had a great sailing day on Suttons Bay with our young scientists. After 23 years it is good to see that our mission of Great Lakes education continues to be relevant and vital to the entire Great Lakes region.”
For further information about their shipboard and shore-side education programs that are designed to inspire young people’s interest in science and to provide for the long-term stewardship of the Great Lakes, contact ISEA at (231) 271-3077.
