Leading the Way in Environmental Education

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning environmental education program designed for all educators working with students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Since its introduction in the early 1970’s, PLT has been recognized as a leading environmental education program. Through hands-on, interdisciplinary activities, PLT provides students with opportunities to investigate environmental issues and encourages them to make informed, responsible decisions.

"After collecting leaves outside, T (a third grader) began creating pictures with leaf rubbings. He expanded on the lesson, creating a Plant Man, who saves the universe by keeping plants alive, using his powers of sunshine, water, and soil. This child, who has struggled academically, was using vocabulary words correctly such as "tsunami," "extinction," and "humanity." He was engaged in the hands-on experience in ways in which I had not previously seen. I was very impressed with his knowledge, and I was thankful for the supplies that Project Learning Tree provided so that I had the opportunity to see that."
