Conservation Education

The NCFS sponsors, conducts or assists with several environmental education efforts designed for teachers and other educators.

Investigating Your Environment Workshops
Each summer the North Carolina Forest Service offers educators a chance to explore the environment with innovative learning activities suitable for integration into any school curriculum.

The 2016 workshop will be held in Crossnore, NC July 10-15.

Project Learning Tree Workshop
Project Learning Tree is an award-winning environmental education program designed for teachers and other educators working with students in kindergarten through grade twelve. PLT uses the forest as a "window" into the natural world, helping young people gain an awareness and knowledge of the world around them, as well as their place within it.

PLT is a source of interdisciplinary instructional activities and provides workshops and in-service programs for teachers, foresters, park and nature center staff, and youth group leaders. To receive information on where this workshop is being conducted in your area please call Hannah Thompson-Welch at (919) 857-4847, or the Forestry office in your area. Workshop information may also be found on the online calendar, or by contacting the NC PLT State Coordinator, Renee Strnad, at 919-515-5518.

Educational State Forest Classes
The NCFS's seven Educational State Forests each offer unique educational programs for students from kindergarten through middle school. Classes are correlated with N.C. Department of Public Instruction guidelines.
