“Award-winning materials, workshops for credit (or just for fun!), terrific educator network. Idaho PLT is the place to be!”
“With the hands-on activities, and often times outdoor experiences that go along with teaching these lessons, learning is always exceptional.”
“The reputation of these classes and the instructors is known statewide. Our time is not wasted for one minute! Lots of variety.”
