Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an international award-winning environmental education program focusing on the forest as a window on the world. PLT teaches not only about trees, but also about land, air, and water to help students understand our complex environment. These lessons help instill confidence and commitment to take responsible action on behalf of the environment.

PLT provides workshops to educators using hands-on lessons developed by hundreds of educators and environmental experts to bring the natural world into the classroom. All workshop participants receive PLT activity guides and an opportunity to become trained DNR volunteer facilitators.
Workshops are open to any formal or nonformal educators, pre- and in-service classroom educators, natural resources professionals, naturalists, scout leaders, and others interested in environmental education.
