Event Description: 

Forests are an important part of the carbon cycle, and can make a big difference for our climate. This webinar is designed for middle/high school teachers and non-formal educators who want to consider the role of forests in their climate change curriculum. Using nationally recognized, NGSS-aligned activities from Project Learning Tree, as well as local experts and guides, we will learn about current climate issues and how they affect Connecticut forests. We will also discuss the role of forests in mitigating climate change. Teachers will be provided a free PLT curriculum with hands-on lessons and ideas that will help them teach their students about forests while staying aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.
