Why? Have you or a colleague ever talked about how “young people” aren’t interested in Tree Farming or forestry or maybe even natural resource professions in general? Now you can make a difference!
Join Maine Project Learning Tree (MEPLT) for an introduction to the PLT curriculum. This is an opportunity to meet with teachers who value the woods as an outdoor classroom for their students. The possibilities for offering your expertise are unlimited and your participation with your local area school can make a difference for many students. PLT activities are great tools to use for school or community visits.
Not sure about meeting with students? How about community groups where you live and work! Even more possibilities exist for engaging with kids and communities. Once you get involved and experience the enthusiasm that PLT activities create, you’ll likely be back!
Maine Project Learning Tree (MEPLT) is a program of the Maine TREE Foundation and operates nationally as part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), Inc. Nationally, Project Learning Tree is the longest running environmental education program in the country, delivering pre-K through 12th grade curriculum both in person and in on-line workshops.
All participants will receive the National PLT K-8 curriculum guide or the Focus on Forests high school module, a certificate of participation noting 5 contact hours, and lunch!
