4-H LogoThis summer, Project Learning Tree® (PLT) released correlations between the PLT K-8 Activity Guide and 4-H Life Skills. This project was undertaken and led by former national PLT staff member, Rachel Bayer, now with the University of Maryland Extension as a 4-H Extension Educator. Project Learning Tree uses trees and forests as windows on the world to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it. Since 1976, PLT has exemplified high-quality environmental education.

The PLT program is characterized by three equally important components: high-quality instructional materials for grades PreK-12, carefully designed professional development, and an extensive distribution and support network.
PLT’s instructional materials for early childhood through grade 12 can be used with students in formal school settings and with youth in nonformal settings. The hands-on activities connect children to nature, engage students in learning, improve student achievement, grow 21st-century skills, and makes teaching and learning fun!

PLT and 4-H programs provide experiential, student-driven learning that results in positive outcomes for youth. In North Carolina, the Project Learning Tree program is housed in NC State University Extension Forestry with additional support from the North Carolina Forestry Association and the North Carolina Forest Service. Workshops are provided across the state and are open for anyone to attend. To find a workshop near you, visit the NC PLT Calendar. To schedule a professional development workshop for 4-H volunteers, agents, or other educators in your county, contact the PLT State Coordinator and Extension Associate, Renee Strnad at
