Educator Workshop Series: Project Learning Tree

Wednesday, July 17, 2019
8:30 am4:00 pm
The Dawes Arboretum, 7770 Jacksontown Rd, Newark, OH 43056

Through the use of over 90 hands-on activities, Project Learning Tree (PLT) covers topics in both the natural and built environments – forests, wildlife, water, air, energy, waste, climate change, invasive species, community planning, and culture. The guide uses the forest as a ‘window’ into the natural world, helping young people gain an awareness and knowledge of the world around them. PLT can be used to teach language arts, social studies, nutrition, mathematics, visual arts, and more.
All workshops start at 8:30 am and end by 4 pm. Graduate and Step Up to Quality credits available.
Space is limited; pre-registration is required for all workshops. Cost: $5/workshop. Workshops are facilitated by Licking County Soil & Water Conservation District, Licking Park District, and The Dawes Arboretum.
