We are excited to welcome Acacia Bamberg Salatti, Director of the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships (The Partnership Center) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

This workshop will focus on the PLT K-8 Guide. Please bring a bag lunch as this workshop includes a working lunch. Please dress appropriately to be outside for part of the workshop. Directions will be sent upon registration.
Project Learning Tree (PLT) is an interdisciplinary environmental education program designed for educators of ANY background. The hands-on activities facilitate the exploration of topics including communication, economics, energy and fuels, geology, government, history, recycling, transportation, watersheds, wildlife, and much more! Participants will learn about the materials through direct engagement in the PLT activities throughout the workshop.
Differentiated instruction? Technology connections? Literature links? STEM? The PLT activity guide covers it all!!! The PreK-8 guide is correlated to the Common Core (math and ELA) as well as to the NC Essential Standards (science and social studies). CEU renewal credits are available. This workshop qualifies for Criteria I in the EE Certification Program.
Workshop materials are provided at no cost to participants through partnership with the NC Forestry Association, however, pre-registration is required. Please make a personal commitment to attend to ensure there are enough materials and space for everyone. If you must cancel, please do so in a timely manner.
In this webinar, we will share information about chronic disease prevention programs that might be of interest to the faith community members with whom you work. Learn about innovative projects, including a new Faithful Families program through SNAP-Ed in North Carolina, as well as local programs your participants might want to utilize.
