Project Learning Tree Workshop, March 3, 2012


About PLT

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning, interdisciplinary, environmental education program designed for formal and non-formal educators working with students in pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. PLT uses trees and forests as the context to help young people gain an awareness and knowledge of natural and built environments. PLT stimulates students’ critical and creative thinking; develop students’ ability to make informed decisions on environmental issues; and instills a commitment of responsible action on behalf of the environment.

Trained facilitators conduct workshops throughout Florida. During the workshops, participants receive the Pre-K–8 Activity Guide or Secondary Module and experience first-hand the fun, hands-on, easy-to-use activities. Participants may receive additional PLT materials depending on the theme of the workshop.
