PLT Committee


Project Learning Tree ® (PLT) uses trees and forests as windows on the world to increase students' understanding of the environment and actions they can make to improve. PLT provides educators with curriculum, professional development, and resources to integrate environmental education into lesson plans of all grades and subject areas, and to use the outdoors to engage students in learning about the world around them. PLT teaches students how to think, not what to think about complex environmental issues, and helps them acquire the skills they need to make informed choices about the environment. Developed in 1976, PLT's 50-state network includes more than 500,000 trained educators funding PLT materials that cover the total environment and more than 2,000 PLT GreenSchools!

Project Learning Tree is a program of the American Forest Foundation that is sponsored in the state of Mississippi by the Mississippi Forestry Association (MFA). PLT was brought to Mississippi in 1987, and since that date over 20,000 Mississippians have become trained PLT educators. This would not be possible without the continuous support of the network of facilitators and volunteers that make the program possible. Click here to find out ways you can help out!
