Northern Lights Eco Adventures sprung from a desire to merge our community goals with local talent and expertise. A community plan is a living breathing document that grows with time.
In the summer of 2018 Northern Lights Eco Adventures piloted our first Region Service Expedition. It encompassed four nights and five days of expedition-based learning through the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Northwest Indiana.
The campers started in Michigan City and ended at the Douglas Center in Gary. The campers backpacked/paddled/and biked through the dunes and beach while learning about the local ecosystems and natural history of the community.
The students also participated in local service projects and community art projects. By the end of the trip the students created a goal with an action plan dedicated to an individualized service project committed to complete in their hometown.
