Upcoming Workshops: Project Learning Tree

Do you want to bring the outdoors to your classroom but don’t know where to start? How about getting certified to teach an outdoor curriculum?

Workshops are held across the state for programs like Project WET, Project WILD (which also has the programs Flying WILD and WILD Aquatic), and Project Learning Tree. Many times these workshops are sponsored or hosted by an organization able to lower the cost to educators. These are interactive workshops and will take you through the curriculum as well as give you pointers on how to run the activities. Learn from others in the environmental education field and network with other Michigan teachers. These programs link environmental education to Michigan’s education standards, making these lessons relevant in a classroom setting while also providing a different way to present information to students. Your students will be learning and may not even realize it!


There are a couple of workshops coming up in January and February for Project Learning Tree and Project WILD listed below. Contact the coordinators directly if you would like to register.

Here is a workshop for Project Learning Tree (PLT) in Kalamazoo on January 28, 2017.
