Northwest Michigan offers a wide variety of learning experiences ranging from art, science, environmental studies and nature adventures. Teachers can take advantage of these opportunities by planning an overnight or multi-night field trip to the area.
Michigan Legacy Art Park’s field trip grant can help offset expenses for either $500 of busing cost or MLAP entry fees.
