Free workshop to provide environmental curriculum guides and resources for educators and parents

ROMNEY, W.Va. — Teachers, youth group leaders and home school parents who want to educate children about the environment are encouraged to attend a joint Project Learning Tree (PLT) and Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) workshop, March 23, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Mineral County Health Department, 541 Harley O Staggers Drive, Keyser.

Project Learning Tree is an international, award-winning environmental education program for kids in grades PreK through 12. Through participation in PLT’s engaging activities, students gain knowledge and develop critical thinking skills. The activities within PLT incorporate important environmental lessons into all disciplines, including the sciences, mathematics, fine arts, social studies, language arts and music. The activities are designed for use in formal and informal settings. PLT is correlated to state and national educational standards.

The West Virginia Forestry Association and the West Virginia Division of Forestry serve as the state sponsors of Project Learning Tree.

Project WET addresses atmospheric water, surface water, groundwater, cultural and historical uses of water, and contemporary water management issues such as stormwater management and nonpoint source pollution. The activities are designed to complement existing curricula rather than displace or add additional concepts in the classroom.

The workshop is free. Participants must register by Friday, March 15. To sign up or for more information, contact West Virginia Division of Forestry Education Specialist Linda Carnell at 304-822-4512 or email Linda.O.Carnell@wv.gov.

Workshop attendees will learn how to use the activities and receive copies of both PLT and Project WET curriculum guides. Participants also earn professional development certificates at the completion of the program.
