Placed-based education documentary airs tonight

Michigan State University Extension contributed to a PBS placed-based education documentary produced by documentary filmmaker Bob Gliner. “Growing Up Green” will air on PBS nationally throughout the month of April.

Extension educator Brandon Schroeder let us know about the documentary: “Two of the nine hubs leading this work in Michigan are MSU-led – our Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) and GRAND Learning Network (Shari Dann) – and so we are well represented in this statewide GLSI documentary. Exciting!”

Kelley Hiemstra, District 4 coordinator said, “What a great example of MSUE programs. It has all of the components, great partners, education, and leadership AND now nationally recognized.”

Watch tonight! The first showing is at 10:30 p.m on PBS station WCML in Alpena, WCMV in Cadillac, WCMZ IN Flint and WCMW in Manistee. It will be showing on various PBS stations at various times across Michigan throughout April. Brandon’s article contains a broadcast schedule for the documentary.

Congratulations to all on your hard work!
