Green Opportunities in the City of Detroit

In honor of Earth Week, which includes Earth Day and Arbor Day, we will have representatives from The Greening of Detroit on hand to discuss what they are doing to transform the physical, and metaphorical, landscape of Detroit. For over two decades, this non-profit organization has been instrumental in spear-heading green initiatives, most notably the repatriation of trees, in conjunction with the City of Detroit and Detroit Public Schools. If you are interested in learning about an innovative and fun project focused on the revitalization of the city, and how you can get involved, please join us on April 24 from 7:00-8:00 PM for this event. There will be the opportunity to sign up for tree-planting and park clean-up volunteer activities as well as enroll in the Citizen Forester program. Check out the Greening on Channel 7 News and in the Detroit Free Press. See the attached document for more details.

STEM: Science for Tomorrow Workshops

The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History will be presenting their Science for Tomorrow: STEM Career Workshops here at Canton Public Library. These programs are designed to introduce middle school students to STEM careers, show them who scientists really are and what they do, and provide them with practical tools for navigating high school, applying for college and achieving those careers. 
Through a series of four interactive workshops, students will get to meet the U-M faculty or alumni who work in the STEM related fields every day.  They are also given tools to help them take charge of their educational future and given assistance in setting realistic goals to get them into STEM fields in college. 
The program begins with a U-M campus visit in Ann Arbor for each student and one caregiver.  A bus will leave from Canton Public Library at 9 AM on Saturday, April 26. After a visit to a working science lab, campus tour, lunch with faculty and students and presentations by U-M admissions staff, the bus will return to the library around 3:00 PM. 
The program continues for 3 more workshops at the Canton Public Library on the days and times listed below. Space is limited. Registration for the bus ride to Ann Arbor also registers each student for the remaining workshop sesssions at the library.
