Project Learning Tree’s (PLT) nationally acclaimed pre-K through high school environmental education curriculum is the framework for learning more about the importance of New Hampshire’s forests. Tours combine math, science, technology, language arts and social studies with current information about forest practices, up-to-date technology, and careers.

Participants can look forward to connecting with expert natural resource professionals, networking, spending time in and learning about New Hampshire forests and ways to engage students in learning about forest ecosystems and management.

Teachers will experience award winning Project Learning Tree activities with links to the STEM and the NGSS that can be incorporated into the curricula with K-12 students.

Each participant will be certified as a Project Learning Tree teacher and be eligible for certification of 30 contact hours.

NHPLT & NHTOA will cover all expenses except the $200 registration fee which includes shared overnight accommodations, all meals, transportation to and from tour stops, and educational materials to take back to the classroom.

The event begins with a half day Project Learning Tree (PLT) workshop. PLT curriculum is incorporated on our tours which will focus on long-term sustainable management of New Hampshire forests. We will visit nearby forest management areas, logging operations, and sawmills, and will have opportunities to discuss field operations and multiple use management considerations with foresters, wildlife biologists, and other natural resource professionals.
