Project Learning Tree provides a means of teaching children to understand the forest and its importance to society. As a forester, I am hopeful this follows them to adulthood and have that background when they become the future forest landowners and make sound managment decisions.

The support TFA has given to promote Project Learning Tree in the state of Tennessee has been something they have done because they are an organization that believes in teachers and informal educators learning how to teach their students in a manner that doesn't tell students WHAT to think, but HOW to think about the forest. Through PLT and other educational efforts, Tennesse Forestry Association has invested well in the citizens of Tennessee and have done this without fanfare or self-promotion.

I have been involved with Project Learning Tree in Tennessee for 28 years. During that entire time TFA has been the driving force in the management, promotion and implementation of this award winning program in Tennessee. Because of the support from TFA thousands of teachers across the state have been trained in the use of PLT materials. Because of this literally hundreds of thousands of students have been exposed to conservation education lessons in Tennessee. They are the Best!

TFA supports the provision of professional development of TN teachers in Project Learning Tree, a wonderful environmental education program! It also recognizes outstanding PLT educators and workshop leaders in TN and hosts a PLT section on its website at http://www.tnforestry.com/PLT/
