More information about the workshops

The Early Childhood curriculum connects young children with the natural world by building on what's already familiar.  It consists of both teacher-led and self-guided experiences that incorporate reading, dramatic play, art and other pre-school features.  The curriculum is organized around the senses, the seasons, and neighborhood trees.   It is intended to pique curiosity, build awareness and vocabulary while honoring creativity.  Try out and discuss the activities and experiences with peers in a collegial atmosphere.


The K-8 Curriculum is multidisciplinary, provides information via age-appropriate, hands-on minds-on activities, and builds critical thinking skills. Activities are easily adaptable and flexible for the teacher and engaging for students.  Enjoy the collegial atmosphere while participating in and discussing activities with peers.


[Project Learning Tree® is a program of the American Forest Foundation and is sponsored in Massachusetts by the Department of Conservation and Recreation with support from the Massachusetts Forest Alliance. All curriculum is carefully developed and tested with input from practicing educators, university faculty, and natural resource professionals.  PLT has won numerous awards for excellence.  http://www.plt.org
