Great Lakes Quests

Great Lakes Quests

Great Lakes Quests are virtual learning activities about coastal issues and places in Wisconsin. An interactive ArcGIS StoryMap interspersed with text, images, and videos, and links to deeper web content provide a narrative about coastal resilience issues affecting the Lake Michigan coast of southeastern Wisconsin. The “quest” is to answer questions that reveal clues towards solving a word or phrase that is significant to the coastal issues and place. Wisconsin Sea Grant and the Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center collaborated to developed these inquiry- and place-based learning activities.
