Mother Nature is a great teacher and getting kids outside to learn and play is good for their brains and their bodies. 

Contact with nature is more essential today given that children are spending nearly 8 hours a day using entertainment media and only 6 percent of children ages 9-13 play outside on their own. We are at risk of losing an entire generation’s appreciation for how nature works and what it needs to remain healthy and productive.

For 40 years, Project Learning Tree has been taking kids outside to learn.

How?

·         By providing educators with the tools, training and resources they need to bring the environment into their classrooms, and their students into the environment. 

·         By adapting its activities for families to use with children, to help them get outdoors to experience nature and learn about trees and forests.

Attend the upcoming PLT workshop at Dothan Area Botanical Gardens to learn how to integrate PLT into lesson plans for all grades and subject areas, and make outdoor experiences part of your students’ learning experience.

Your $15 registration fee includes entrance to the botanical gardens, lunch, and the Project Learning Tree environmental education curriculum.  Online registration is requested and preferred for planning purposes.  Class begins at 8:30 am CST; check-in available at 8:15 am.  Please meet in the Botanical Center (main building).  Class concludes by 2:00 pm.
