MONTPELIER -- The award winning environmental education program from Project Learning Tree (PLT) is expanding in Vermont. Vermont PLT is looking for individuals who wish to become Certified Project Learning Tree Facilitators.
These individuals will represent organizations that have an interest in or ongoing need to train staff, students, volunteers, teachers or community partners to use conservation and environmental education activities and programs in their work.
Vermont PLT will hold a facilitator workshop March 27 and 28 at One World Conservation Center in Bennington to train and support new workshop facilitators to use the PLT PreK-8th grade, early childhood, and high school materials. This workshop will focus on methods for training adult learners and ways to meet the unique conservation and environmental education needs of their organizations and school districts. Following a "Train the Trainer" model, this workshop will prepare new facilitators to use environmental education activity guides to facilitate workshops themselves as needed, choosing and adapting activities to fit their programs and the audiences they serve.
PLT is an award winning international environmental education curricula aligned to all state and national education standards.
