Calumet Nature Educators Database

The Calumet Nature Educators Database links two important lists.  The first is a list of nature education providers in the Calumet region of Illinois and Indiana at the southern end of Lake Michigan.  The second is a comprehensive list of the region’s schools.  The two lists are cross-referenced and mapped in order to answer crucial questions about nature education in the region.
