Experience the beauty and inspiration of youth art! After camping for a few days and experiencing the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, youth took to the brush and, through words and image, shared what they feel is important about stewardship of natural places, especially Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Youth participants came from Odanah, Ashland, Mellen, Red Cliff, Iron River and Washburn. All participants experienced their ‘backyard’ in new and inspiring ways!
This project was developed and implemented by SOEI Youth Outreach Programs in the summer of 2021 with the help of Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, Lost Creek Adventures, Lake Superior Tall Ships, SPARK, Bad River Youth Programs, Red Cliff Family and Human Services and PMG Charters.
Stewardship flags will be on display at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute March 1- 31.
Flags will be sold (by permission from youth artists) by silent auction throughout the month of March, 2022. The silent auction opens on March 1 and closes on March 31. Winners will be contacted on Sigurd Olson’s birthday, April 4th! You can view the flags and bid on them on SOEI Youth Outreach Facebook page.
