Using the Power of Education to Build Resilient Communities

I’m excited by my new role at PLT where I can channel my passion for community sustainability and urban forestry into my day-to-day work. PLT’s Discover Your Urban Forest activity collection for middle school teachers is a great example of the kind of PLT resources to engage youth who will be leading voices on sustainability challenges like climate change in the years to come.

New PLT Activities Pilot Tested

We have completed a pilot test of five new PLT activities for grades K-8 with both formal and non-formal educators across the county.


Superintendents Environmental Education Collaborative

SEEC is a partnership between School Superintendents and PLT, NAAEE and Upstream Alliance that’s working to educate superintendents across the US on the benefits of environmental education to encourage more schools to integrate environmental education into the classroom.

To celebrate our partnership, Your True Nature is offering a 30% discount on all Advice items for members of the PLT community AND an additional 10% of all purchases will be donated to PLT.

Project Learning Tree Turns 40!

Back in 1976 the first PLT workshops were held in ten western states. Since then PLT has trained more than 675,000 educators across the country through in-person workshops. But, we’re keeping pace with change and now also offer environmental education on demand.
