Project Learning Tree, an initiative of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, is an award-winning environmental education program and curriculum.

Maine PLT is administered by Maine TREE and engages a network of teachers, informal educators, parents, and community leaders throughout the state to “teach students how to think, not what to think.”
