This workshop will focus on Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood. Please prepare to be outside for a portion of the workshop, and bring your lunch.

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program designed for educators of ANY background. Participants in this professional learning experience will:
  • Receive PLT’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood Activity Guide and accompanying music CD
  • Identify new hands-on activities to share with learners based on the five senses, the seasons of the year, and trees in your neighborhood
  • Engage learners through song, dance, exploration, and play
  • Discover how to incorporate literature into your early childhood EE programs
  • Create a plan to infuse early childhood programming with environmental education learning experiences
  • Earn CEUs, in-service credit, or NC Environmental Education Certification hours (Criteria I)
Pre-registration is required. There is a $20 cost for this workshop ($30 if you are doing the facilitator training). PLT Activity Guides are provided at no additional costs through support from the NC Forestry Association.

Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. Cancellations made by the registration deadline will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after this date will not receive a refund.

Those wishing to be trained as PLT Facilitators for the Early Childhood materials (only) may pay an additional $10 for the facilitator training on Tuesday, August 13. All PLT Facilitators are required to host and lead a PLT workshop at least once a year (we encourage co-facilitation). Facilitator training will take place from 9am - 2pm on Tuesday, August 13, at the same location. You must select this additional option in the registration system.
