NC Cooperative Extension 4756 Caraway Mountain Rd, Sophia, NC 27350, USA

Caraway Camp and Conference Center
Asheboro, NC
To Register: Renee Strnad renee_strnad@ncsu.edu 919-515-5518
Registration Deadline is September 3, 2014.

This workshop is being presented in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Southeastern EE Alliance Conference hosted by Environmental Educators of North Carolina. This workshop will be the first time this workshop has been held in North Carolina, and the facilitators are all from the University of Florida.... the students and faculty members that have been writing, leading the pilot-testing, and revising of the materials. This workshop is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! There is a $20 fee for this workshop to cover the cost of the facility and lunch. Checks can be made payable to EENC and brought with you to the workshop.

PINEMAP has partnered with Project Learning Tree to develop, test, and implement a new secondary environmental education module, Southeastern Forests and Climate Change. This module provides educators with the necessary information and resources to engage secondary students in lessons about climate change, forest ecosystems, the carbon cycle, pine tree genetics, modeling, and life cycle assessments. The module explores these concepts in 13 experiential activities that are based on PINEMAP’s interdisciplinary research. The activities incorporate technology, data analysis, critical thinking, and system-thinking skills to encourage students to understand the connections between human, biological, and physical systems.

The activities are designed for students in grades 9 through 12, though many could be adapted for middle school or college students. With its application of climate change to forest ecosystems and management, this module is intended to be used by life science, biology, agriculture, and environmental science teachers. To help educators address curriculum standards, each activity has been correlated to the Next Generation Science Standards and the Project Learning Tree Conceptual Framework.


This module is designed to help students

Understand how climate change could impact forests in the southeastern U.S.;
Understand how forests can be managed to address changing climate conditions and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
Enhance decision-making skills to make informed choices as consumers to mitigate climate change;
Develop systems-thinking skills to see connections between climate change, forests, and people;
Recognize that individual and community actions can help mitigate and adapt to climate change; and
Become part of future community conversations about climate change and potential solutions.
