About The Program

Project Learning Tree (PLT), the environmental education program of the American Forest Foundation, uses forests as a window into the world and provides educators with environmental education curriculum resources that can be integrated into lesson plans for all grades and subject areas. PLT offers grants up to $1,000 to schools and youth organizations for environmental service-learning projects that link classroom learning to the real world. Students implement an action project they help design to green their school or to improve an aspect of their neighborhood’s environment. The projects partner students with their whole school, local businesses and/or community organizations, and provide opportunities for student leadership.

GreenWorks! offers opportunities for people of all ages to work together to enhance their surroundings. By linking PLT educators and their students with local community groups, GreenWorks! action projects help educate communities about environmental issues and engage people in working together to find solutions to environmental problems within their communities. Community participation is the cornerstone of a GreenWorks! action project—people working together to improve the environment.
