PLT is an award-winning environmental education program and curriculum designed for teachers, informal educators, parents, and community leaders.

PLT’s curriculum, developed for different age/grade levels, fosters awareness, engages critical thinking skills and promotes constructive action.  The interdisciplinary “hands-on; minds-on” curriculum is designed for diverse teaching and learning styles.

These materials are available by attending educator workshops or online through PLT's National Office.  Information and supplementary resources are posted on the PLT's website, https://www.plt.org 

The Department of Conservation and Recreation sponsors PLT in Massachusetts with support from the Massachusetts Forest Alliance.  In-person workshops led by trained facilitators are available for classroom teachers, home school parents, youth group leaders, nature center staff and those who work with young people.
