NASF Resolution No. 1997-4: Project Learning Tree

Recognizing and Supporting Project Learning Tree

Since its inception in 1973, Project Learning Tree (PLT) has emerged as one of the country's leading and most widely used environmental education programs for elementary and secondary schools.

PLT's goal is to provide young citizens with the skills and understanding necessary to make intelligent decisions about our global environment.

Co-sponsored by the American Forest Foundation and the Western Regional Environmental Education Council, PLT has reached approximately 20 million students and more than 400,000 teachers since its inception.

PLT's success is in part due to the network of people who make it work. Partnerships are the heart of PLT.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of PLT and its importance to conservation education, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the members of NASF embrace the mission and goals of PLT and recommend that members become active partners in State programs.
