Project Learning Tree's mission is to use the forest as a "window on the world" to increase students' understanding of our complex environment; stimulate critical and creative thinking; develop the ability to make informed decisions on environmental issues; and instill the confidence and commitment to take responsible action. It is a widely recognized, well-tested educational initiative for school children. Our training workshops involve a partnership of trained educators and foresters. The materials offer a balanced picture of natural resource conservation, emphasizing neither economic nor environmental factors, but blending both in a comprehensive perspective. Project Learning Tree (PLT) in Florida is coordinated by the School of Forest Resources and Conservation at University of Florida (SFRC/UF) in partnership with the Florida Division of Forestry, Florida Forestry Association, and UF/IFAS 4-H Extension program.
