Project Learning Tree Seeks Applications for Environmental Education Projects

Project Learning Tree advances environmental literacy and promotes environmental stewardship through excellence in environmental education, professional development, and curriculum resources that use trees and forests as windows on the world.

To that end, PLT is accepting applications from schools and nonprofit organizations for environmental service-learning projects through its GreenWorks! grants program. The program is designed to help students make their schools “greener” and healthier by, for example, implementing a recycling program, conserving water and energy, initiating a project to improve air quality, or establishing a school garden or outdoor classroom and integrating it into the curriculum.

Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to support environmental service-learning projects that demonstrate service-learning, exemplify student voice, and involve at least one community partner. To be eligible for a grant, the proposed project must have secure at least a 50 percent match from another source (in-kind acceptable).

The GreenWorks! program is open to any PLT-trained educator in any U.S. state and the District of Columbia.

See the PLT website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.
