Arbor Day PLT Activities

Many Project Learning Tree activities relate to Arbor Day. National Project Learning Tree has some great sample activities provided on their website: https://www.plt.org/sample-lesson-plans These can be used to help students understand the value of trees in our community and why we should celebrate them!

Wyoming State Forestry Division also has some valuable educational and technical resources about Wyoming trees that can be found here: https://wsfd.wyo.gov/forestry-assistance-programs/community-forestry/educational-technical-resources .

To acquire the PLT curriculum guides go to shop.plt.org and attend one of our upcoming workshops found under our Calendar of Events.
