    LEEP (Lakeshore Environmental Education Program) provides learning opportunities for students in the 5th to 8th grade in tri-cities schools.

    In 2015, the fourth year of LEEP, we have seven after school groups that each run for 8 weeks. The cost to families is $10. Students receive a LEEP T shirt, and the whole family is invited to a Grand Lady Riverboat Cruise in May. Scholarships are available.

    LEEP groups are led by certified teachers who focus on many and varied areas of the natural world: wetlands, clean water studies, invasive species, and animal habitats. Students are engaged in hands on, and when the weather permits, outdoor experiences.

    LEEP after school groups are in White Pines Intermediate School, Spring Lake Intermediate and Middle Schools, Walden Green and West Michigan Academy for Arts and Academics charter schools, and St. Mary's Catholic School.

    Our groups have a minimum of 8 students and a maximum of 20.. Each session is 1 ½ hours.
