With PLT GreenWorks! grants, students in Alabama, Indiana and Michigan took the lead to restore, design and build nature trails, learning about ecosystems and forest health.
Nearly 5,000 students, from kindergarten to high school, are helping to design and lead a variety of projects to green their schools and improve forests, watersheds, and wildlife habitat.
Teachers, students, school and district staff, educational leaders, building industry professionals, non-profit partners and others who are passionate about making green, healthy schools a reality are invited to attend.
Our new series of free webinars will provide teachers, administrators, and students valuable information and ideas on how to implement PLT’s GreenSchools Investigations.
The awards acknowledge the students, teachers, and school administrators who are working to improve the sustainability, health, and safety of school facilities; ensure nutrition and fitness practices; and engage students in real-world learning.
