Project Learning Tree

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.

Project Learning Tree
  • PLT 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.
  • PLT teaches students "how to think, not what to think" about complex environmental issues.
  • PLT activities supplement existing curricula.
  • PLT activities are hands-on action oriented.
  • PLT activities easily adapt to many settings: classroom, outdoors, the home, city, forest etc.
  • PLT activities are correlated to national and state academic standards as well as Boy and Girl Scout programs.
  • PLT is multi-disciplinary—it is not just science!
  • PLT materials are designed for teachers by teachers, and do not require expensive equipment or kits.
