Since its introduction in the early 1970’s Project Learning Tree has been recognized as one of the premier environmental education programs in the world. PLT uses the forest and trees as “windows” into the natural and built environments, helping students gain awareness of the world around them and their place in it.



The Maine TREE Foundation is celebrating their 30th anniversary!  Saturday, September 21, 2019 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the Old Town Elementary School and then 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the University Forest Pole Barn.  Come and join us celebrate the past 30 years of educating people in environmental education in Maine.  For more information contact info@mainetree.org or 207-621-9872.
