My Great Lake, My Future

On Thursday, May 4, 2017, GDCI Environment SHSM students attended the “My Great Lake, My Future” Student Conference held in Goderich, Ontario. Students listened to a number of speakers including a career panel in the morning which was held at the Knights of Columbus Community Hall.

The afternoon was spent at Point Farms Provincial Park where students engaged in a number of hands-on activities which included removing the invasive plant species called phragmites, learning how to test water for ecoli, holding various reptiles and cleaning up discarded materials along the shoreline. The students learned a great deal about the importance of preserving and caring for our environment.
