This workshop has been completed, although we hope to offer it again in the future. Please visit to find out about similar workshops around the state.

 "Project Learning Tree teaches how to think, not what to think." 

Resource professionals are often called upon as informal educators regarding an array of environmental questions.  Teachers would like to make their classes more active and interactive, without breaking their budget.  This workshop will provide you with interactive, age-appropriate, inexpensive activities that you can use and readily adapt to meet both needs.   The activities were designed by teachers and natural resources personnel, tested in classrooms, and correlated with educational standards.  "PLT activities guide students through a process that begins with awareness, moves to knowledge, challenges preconceived ideas, and seeks constructive avenues for environmental action." 

You must attend both sessions to receive the complementary Environmental Education Activity Guide (Pre K-8), with handy indices to help you select activities for your subject matter and grade.  For instance, there are over 50 activities that can be used for integrated science and social studies lessons, and almost 70 activities recommended for students in the 4th grade!

High school modules (an introductory handbook and separate, specialized modules on forest ecology, forest issues, municipal solid waste, and risk) will also be available for purchase at the workshop ($5 ea, or $20 for the set of 5).

This is an active indoor/outdoor workshop, and it will be conducted rain or shine—please dress appropriately.
