PROJECT LEARNING TREE (PLT)
Trees and forests serve as windows onto the world for learning about the environment, sustainable communities, responsible purchasing of forest products, water quality, economic health and well-being, and so much more.
SFI became Project Learning Tree’s new home in 2017 because of SFI’s commitment to educating and engaging the next generation of environmental stewards. Project Learning Tree helps students understand how their decisions and actions affect the environment, builds knowledge and skills necessary to address key environmental and sustainability challenges.
Project Learning Tree has reached 140 million diverse young people across the United States through 775,000 committed and dedicated educators and community leaders over the last 40 years. This program has engaged young people and adults alike in interactive, engaging, and meaningful activities while teaching them the importance of sustainable forests, and the critical role they play, along the way.
