Forests of Maine Teachers’ Tours
One of our most popular programs, the Forests of Maine Teachers’ Tours, for over 25 years, we have brought more than 1,000 teachers into Maine’s forests. Each year, the four-day tours focus on the growth, harvest, and wood products processing in Maine’s forests.
Throughout the four-day tour, participants engage in Project Learning Tree activities, meet professionals who work in the Maine Woods, and develop ideas on how to bring the forest to the classroom or the classroom to the forest.
