Project Learning Tree
Project Learning Tree® (PLT) is an award winning, multi-disciplinary environmental education program for educators and students in pre-kindergarten to grade twelve. PLT is one of the most widely used environmental education programs in the United States and abroad, and continues to set the standard for environmental education excellence.

PLT helps students learn how to think, not what to think, about the environment.

PLT meets state and national education standards.  The curriculum materials provide the tools educators need to bring the environment into the classroom and their students into the environment. Topics range from forests, wildlife, and water, to community planning, waste management and energy.

PLT is a network of 3,000 grassroots volunteers and over 120 state coordinators that work with formal and nonformal educators, school staff, state agencies, foresters, businesses, civic organizations, museums, nature centers, and youth groups to provide professional development programs.

PLT materials are available through participation in workshops.  To schedule a workshop in your community contact:
