Project Learning Tree is an international, award-winning environmental education program for children in grades Pre-K through twelfth grade. It incorporates environmental education into subject areas such as math, language arts, science and social studies.

This workshop will focus on the “Forests of the World” and “Focus on Forests” modules, with ties to local curriculum and links to NGSS and Common Core Standards. This workshop will also host guest speakers to discuss the workshop theme of Hawaiian forests and their current threats, such as Rapid ‘Ōhi‘a Death.
