**This is a reschedule of September 17th workshop that was postponed due to Hurricane Florence

This novel PLT course uniquely combines three elements to offer maximum depth and value: online prerequisite work introduces the participant to PLT at their leisure while the 6-hour in-person workshop focuses on direct engagement with the flagship PreK-8 curriculum guide plus the secondary module, Southeastern Forests and Climate Change. Participants will earn 10 hrs Criteria I credit in the NC EE Certification Program or 1.0 CEU. Please bring a bag lunch and dress appropriately to be outside for parts of the in-person workshop.

Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program designed for educators of ANY background. The hands-on activities facilitate the exploration topics at the intersection of our natural and built environments. The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). This workshop will also feature the Southeastern Forests and Climate Change module, which investigates climate change impacts on southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module is designed for use in life science, environmental science, and agriculture courses in grades 9-12, with potential use in middle school or community college courses.

You will receive your online course code and directions soon after you register.  You must complete the online course work (2-4 hours at your convenience) before our in-person meeting on Monday, September 17th.  Both PLT curriculum guides are provided at no cost (a $45 value!) to participants through a partnership with the NC Forestry Association, however, pre-registration and a $25 workshop fee is required. Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. If you must cancel, please do so in a timely manner so someone else may take your place in the workshop. Cancellations before October 29 will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after that date will not receive a refund.

About 60% of the total forestland in North Carolina is owned by non-industrial private forest landowners. While the forest sector is an economic engine in most of the rural regions, timber production is not the primary reason for owning forestland for the majority of family forest landowners. Forests offer several alternative income opportunities for landowners, which are often compatible with their primary objectives of owning forestland, and some of them can be achieved without or with little additional efforts. This workshop educates natural resource professionals and landowners about forest-based alternative income streams available to their region.


Who should attend: professional foresters, resource professionals, Extension agents, and landowners

Description: Managing Oak Forests for Northern Bobwhite Quail
About the Webinar: The southeastern United States has millions of acres of oak dominated forests that have a closed canopy with limited herbaceous and shrub understory that northern bobwhite require. However, research has demonstrated that with adequate overstory thinning, and the use of frequent prescribed fire, these forests can support populations of Northern Bobwhite Quail, presenting perhaps the best opportunity for large-scale quail restoration in the region. Participants in the webinar will learn about managing oak forests and restoration efforts related to Northern Bobwhite Quail.
