Each workshop is worth one credit towards professional development, unless noted.

Idaho PLT workshops are for educators who want to teach students how to think about the environment, not what to think.  We help you use the environment to engage children in learning – both outside and indoors.

PLT Workshops in Idaho

Project Learning Tree ® (PLT) is an award winning, multi-disciplinary environmental education program for educators and students in PreK through grade 12.  PLT, a program of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, is one of the most widely used environmental education programs in the US  and abroad, and continues to set the standard for environmental education excellence.  PLT Idaho workshops are aligned with Idaho Standards.  We offer workshops specially designed for educators of PreK, elementary, middle and high school learners.  Our workshops focus on literacy, STEM, trees, fire, climate and much more. 

Who should attend a PLT workshop?

Most participants are K-12 classroom teachers, early childhood educators, college students, curriculum specialists, nature center staff, natural resource professionals, youth group leaders, out-of-school educators and many more.  

What is the curriculum of PLT Idaho workshops?

The curriculum materials provide the tools educators need to bring the environment into the classroom and their students into the environment. Though ‘tree’ is in the name, the curriculum looks at natural and built environments and covers topics ranging from forests, wildlife, and water, to community planning, waste management and energy.

Get the credit you deserve

Workshop participants can earn university credits and Idaho STARS hours.  These credits are optional.
