Inland Seas Adventure

Inland Seas Education Association (ISEA) is a  non-profit organization dedicated to helping people of all ages experience the Great Lakes through hands-on, experiential learning activities aboard a traditionally-rigged tall ship schooner.

The mission of Inland Seas Education Association is to “promote stewardship of the Great Lakes through hands-on education.” When you bring your class on-board the schooner, your students will gain a unique insight into the basic ecology of the Great Lakes. Students become scientists for the day and assist veteran volunteer instructors with the collection and analysis of Great Lakes samples, including fish, plankton and organisms that live along the bottom (benthos). This hands-on experience often translates into an increased awareness of the Great Lakes and promotes stewards.
