Salina Elementary held a small fundraising event for the Green Schoolyard initiative on September 19th.
The Dearborn Green Schoolyards initiative is a result of the district and City of Dearborn’s commitment to clean air, clean water, and clean energy sources for all citizens. Our focus is to connect our children to nature through nature-based learning, to educate them about their environment, and help them learn how to continue to conserve environmental resources. Our children need nature-based experiences and activities to strengthen their physical, mental and emotional health. Children will be happier and well balanced through time spent outdoors.
The event included tours of the new spaces led by Salina students, a silent auction, and a presentation on the future plans for the area.
