“I can tell that a lot of time, thought and consideration has gone into how the [California’s Forestry Institute for Teachers] program is structured. My knowledge and understanding of issues surrounding our forests has increased dramatically. I appreciated hearing from people in the field (loggers, Forest Service, researchers, environmentalists, Park Service, foresters, industry people, etc.). I feel better prepared to share what I know and to bring forestry to my students.”

– California Educator

“PLT GreenWorks! grants focus on youth-led activities, so the Forest Service purposefully provided the high school students the opportunity to do something challenging, and it’s resulted in students gaining self-confidence, pride, knowledge, and experience.”

– Joy Barney, Conservation Education Program Specialist, USDA Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, California
