Description


This workshop will cover the Southeastern Forests and Climate Change Secondary Module and the Carbon & Climate E-Unit

Project Learning Tree® (PLT) and PINEMAP have partnered to develop a secondary module on climate change impacts on southern forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon, and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climatic conditions. The module is designed for use in life science, environmental science, and agriculture courses in grades 9-12, with potential use in middle school or community college courses. The Carbon & Climate e-unit was developed for grades 6-8, and is an integrated online unit provided through PLT’s online portal.

There is a $20 registration fee for this workshop, however, all the PLT materials (a printed SFCC activity guide, the online SFCC portal, and the Climate & Carbon e-unit) are provided at no cost to workshop participants (a $50 value!) through support from the NC Forestry Association. CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I or II in the EE Certification Program.

Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. More detailed information will be sent prior to the workshop. Cancellations made by the registration deadline will receive a $10 refund. Cancellations after this date will not receive a refund.

Registration Deadline: November 5, 2021
