The St. Louis River Alliance celebrated Minnesota Sea Grant's Environmental Quality Extension Educator Cindy Hagley with the 2011 Len Anderson Environmental Stewardship Award. Hagley earned the award "for her passionate leadership in educating and inspiring citizens" related to her work with the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) program in the Great Lakes.

Hagley said, "I'm honored to be chosen for this award. Working for COSEE Great Lakes has been a really gratifying experience."

Through COSEE Great Lakes, Hagley runs professional development opportunities that focus on Great Lakes science for teachers of grades 4-10 and non-formal educators. One of the opportunities involves taking 15 educators on a weeklong science cruises such as this year's shipboard workshop on Lake Superior from July 20 - 27 (for details, see: http://coseegreatlakes.net/events/shipboard11).

The Great Lakes program is part of a network of similar COSEE centers supported by the National Science Foundation's Division of Ocean Sciences. The network's goal is to assist collaborations and communication among researchers and educators.

The Len Anderson Environmental Stewardship Award was presented to Hagley at the 16th Annual Environmental Stewardship Awards ceremony, held in Duluth, Minn., on April 5. Len Anderson, a retired biology teacher, served as a mentor and role model for students and other science teachers and continues to be an active advocate for protecting the St. Louis River.
