Brown Elementary students proved that today’s youth can be leaders and have an impact in their local community.

Students and staff at the school in New Boston came together recently and gave back to the community by collecting piles of donations as part of a school-wide program called “Leader In Me.”

On Friday, the students presented the donations to several different community groups during a special school event.

At the beginning of April, each grade organized and collected items for a local organization.

During the event last Friday, representatives from each grade presented the collected items to members of the organizations.

Leader in Me is a school leadership development program for both students and staff members. The program integrates timeless leadership principles into the school culture, which in return helps build important skills such as self-confidence, accountability, empathy, and academic achievement.

Nearly 300 students, many from Huron Schools, learned about the environment and gave back to the community during an Arbor Day event at Crosswinds Marsh Wetlands Interpretive Preserve on April 26.

The event held was themed “trees, bees and me” and was hosted by Detroit Metropolitan Airport, Wayne County Parks, and their partners.

While visiting the marsh, sixth graders from Renton Junior High School in New Boston and Romulus Middle School learned about sustainability, the important role of bees, trees and insects in the ecosystem, and the value of wetlands.

Throughout the event, students participated in discussions about the importance of bees to the food system and how the food supply will be impacted by the decline in bee populations.

Students had the chance to watch bees in an observation hive and take honey from local beehives.

Several Michigan native trees were also be planted at the park, and students left with their own saplings to plant at home in honor of Arbor Day.

“The Wayne County Airport Authority is committed to giving back to the community,” said WCAA CEO Chad Newton. “There is no better way to do that than by educating a child and leaving an imprint on their minds. Arbor Day is an event that we look forward to every year. And – this marks our largest year ever. We are truly honored to be a sponsor of such a wonderful experience for children.”

Students rotated between six learning stations hosted by United Lawnscape, Green Toe Gardens, Wayne County Conservation District and Wayne County Parks.

Huron High School students assisted the younger children at the stations.

“Wayne County is happy to again partner with the Airport for the annual Arbor Day event,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. “Year after year, this experience continues to create lasting memories for our participants with engaging activities and lessons in the great outdoors. We hope this year’s event will inspire our youth to be lifelong stewards of our natural resources.”

Crosswinds Marsh is one of the largest and most successful wetland mitigation projects in the country, according to Wayne County.

The 1000-acre nature preserve is maintained by Wayne County Parks under an agreement with the Wayne County Airport Authority—which operates Detroit Metropolitan Airport and Willow Run Airport.
