SAF Supports New PLT Green Jobs Unit
October 22, 2019
Project Learning Tree (PLT), the award-winning environmental education initiative of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), has developed new supplementary education materials to help youth discover careers in sustainable forestry and conservation.
Green Jobs: Exploring Forest Careers
includes four hands-on instructional activities to help youth research different forest-sector jobs, and practice managing and monitoring forest resources. Anyone can use this resource with learners aged 12–25 in settings ranging from community youth programs and school classrooms, to college and career prep, to field trips and forest tours.
Support for the Green Jobs: Exploring Forest Careers unit and accompanying online resources was provided by the U.S. Forest Service and the Society of American Foresters.
“SAF is proud to support this exciting, new resource from our partners at Project Learning Tree and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative,” said Terry Baker, CEO at the Society of American Foresters. “Forests and trees are poised to be a major part of the solution to many of our world’s most pressing issues, which is why inspiring the next generation of forestry professionals and conservation leaders is fundamental to our future.”
