What is Project Learning Tree?

Project Learning Tree® (PLT) is widely recognized as one of the premier environmental education programs in the world. Through hands-on, interdisciplinary activities, PLT helps young people learn how to think, not what to think, about complex environmental issues.

PLT has unique curriculum for early childhood, K-8, and high school students.

Project Learning Tree is a program of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. In Wisconsin, PLT is part of the LEAF Program in the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education, at UW-Stevens Point’s College of Natural Resources. Support is also provided by the Wisconsin DNR – Division of Forestry.

How can I access PLT Training?
