The International Project Learning Tree Coordinator’s Conference is being hosted for the first time ever in Arkansas this week. Greenbrier High School and Greenbrier Junior High School Art students were asked to participate in the conference in a unique way. As conferences are held in a different state each year, the host strives to capture the beauty and uniqueness of the state for all the attendees. Our students are providing a “Little Rock from Little Rock” for each attendee, which are river rocks painted with a unique symbol or representation of our beautiful Arkansas. Attendees at our Arts Fest a few weeks ago possibly saw some of this artwork on display.
Project Learning Tree is an award-winning environmental education program designed for teachers and other educators, parents, and community leaders working with youth from preschool through grade 12. Recognized as a leader in environmental education for 40 years, PLT enhances critical thinking, problem solving, and effective decision-making skills. PLT advances environmental literacy and promotes stewardship through excellence in environmental education, professional development, and curriculum resources that use trees and forests as windows on the world.
It is Greenbrier’s pleasure to have our students showcase their talent and assist with this conference is such a unique way! PLT attendees, welcome to and enjoy The Natural State this week!
