Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an environmental education program that uses the outdoors as a classroom. Through interactive lessons, teachers will gain awareness and knowledge of the natural world, using our native forests as a foundation. Activities focus on engaging students in hands-on experiences that develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
