Project Learning Tree

Project Learning Tree logoProject Learning Tree (PLT) is an award-winning internationally recognized environmental education program that uses the forest as a "window to the world," helping young people gain an awareness and knowledge of the world around them and their place within it. PLT’s ready-made activities and lesson plans can integrate easily into an existing curriculum and can be used to supplement all subject areas. Students develop skills in creative problem solving, critical thinking, and evaluation and research while having fun.

PLT activities are hands-on, interdisciplinary, and engaging. They correlate to both state and national educational standards, useful to formal and non-formal educators from pre-school through high school. PLT is designed to teach students HOW to think, not tell them what to think.

The Indiana PLT program offers professional development workshops for educators looking to integrate trees, forests, and natural resources into their classrooms or programs. These active and engaging workshops provide educators with PLT materials, Professional Growth Plan points, and opportunities to share and collaborate with other environmentally-minded educators. See below and check the DNR Events Calendar for more information on upcoming open Indiana PLT workshops:
