Educators determine different types of forest uses around the world during a PLT Forests of the World workshop

PLT workshops are open for any educators, and many of the activities can easily be modified for any age group. PLT workshops and the materials are also great for those involved with youth groups, scouting, homeschool educators, and parents! Others attending your PLT workshop may include state park rangers, local teachers, 4-H agents and volunteer leaders, forest rangers, YMCA educators, homeschool parents, and natural resource professionals.

All our current workshops can be found on our workshop calendar page. Want to set up a workshop specifically for your group? Contact the NC PLT coordinator, Renee Strnad. Groups must provide a minimum of 12 participants.
