Paddle to the Sea

Track the boats as they make their journey from the Great Lakes to the oceans.

Did you find a boat?

Let us know!

The Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP) in cooperation with Music For All Kids (MFAK) worked with the amazing teachers at Sandy Knoll School to teach third grade students about the Great Lakes watershed they live in, about Great Lakes stewardship and about the timeless story of Paddle to the Sea, written and illustrated by Holling C. Holling. Students decorated their own small boats and launched them on Lake Superior plus they completed an important stormwater education and pollution prevention project in downtown Marquette! In addition, students co-wrote a new song about Great Lakes Stewards with musician Jerry Mills and performed it in front of 700 other students as the opening act to a concert featuring the band Song of the Lakes (see video):
