Learn how you can use activities from PLT's Explore Your Environment: K-8 Activity Guide to meet academic standards while increasing your students' awareness and knowledge about their environment.

Join us for an in person training on PLT’s K-8 new activity guide

PLT provides teachers, parents, nonformal educators, foresters, and community members with fun and engaging, activities and training to take children outside to learn about trees, forests, and the broader environment. You are invited to participate in this highly active, hands-on session to experience and model several PLT activities at the Gardens on Spring Creek in Fort Collins.

Learn how you can use PLT activities, along with other resources and strategies, to engage students in connecting with the environment literacy while meeting academic standards. Enhance your teaching skills and become comfortable teaching outdoors. Connect with other educators and create a plan to put the materials to use right away in your own classroom, playground, or nature center.

Participants will receive a copy of the award winning PLT Explore Your Environment K-8 Activity guide. This new guide includes 50 hands-on, multidisciplinary activities to connect children to nature and increase young people’s awareness and knowledge about their environment.  Activities integrate teaching about the environment into a multitude of subjects using hands-on classroom studies and outdoor field investigations. The guide is user-friendly, and works in classrooms and nonformal settings, in urban, suburban, and rural areas.  Lunch is included. Special thanks to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative for grant funding this event, so this workshop valued at $300 a person can be offered at $25.
