Leading the Way in Environmental Education

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning environmental education program designed for all educators working with students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Since its introduction in the early 1970’s, PLT has been recognized as a leading environmental education program. Through hands-on, interdisciplinary activities, PLT provides students with opportunities to investigate environmental issues and encourages them to make informed, responsible decisions.
