Keeping Michigan Healthy - 5:05
with Melinda Jones, Executive Director of ReLeaf Michigan
Posted Oct 24, 2018
ReLeaf Michigan has worked with over 400 communities across the state. Working with community volunteers, they have planted nearly 30,000 trees on public property in Michigan's cities, townships, and villages. Unlike most other volunteer-driven tree planting organizations, ReLeaf Michigan plants trees that are already substantial in size, at least six-feet tall and 1.5" to 2" trunk caliper, resulting in much higher rates of survival.

Impacts of Toxic Stress and Learning in the Classroom
Center on the Developing Child of Harvard University reports that toxic stress response can occur when a child experiences strong, frequent, and/or prolonged adversity such as physical or emotional abuse, chronic neglect, caregiver substance abuse or mental illness, exposure to violence, and/or the accumulated burdens of family economic hardship without adequate adult support. Becky Carlton, Director of Strategy and Partnership for Michigan's Charter School Association, joins host Laurel Hess for a discussion on how toxic stress impacts learning in the classroom.
