Project Learning Tree

Project Learning Tree (PLT) uses trees and forests as windows on the world to increase students' understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it.  PLT helps develop students' awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of the environment, builds their skills and ability to make informed decisions, and encourages them to take personal responsibility for sustaining the environment and our quality of life that depends on it.

The PLT program is characterized by three important components:
- high-quality instructional materials for grades PreK-12
- carefully designed professional development
- an extensive distribution and support network
