Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an environmental education program designed for teachers and other educators working with students from pre-kindergarten through high school. It uses the forest as a "window" into the natural world, helping young people gain an awareness and knowledge of the environment and their place within it. The SC program is sponsored by the South Carolina Forestry Foundation, forest industry, SC Department of Education, and SC Forestry Commission.
For more information on the PLT program and materials, visit the National PLT website.
SC PLT has funding to offer trainings -free of charge- to pre-service educators studying education, students majoring in natural resources, in-service educators, and early childhood educators registered through DSS. The funded trainings can be offered to these individuals if their associated school, district, or center requests a workshop. Other PLT trainings require a $20 per participant fee.
