Professional Development Workshop
at Grey Towers National Historic Site
A free workshop for educators in the tri-state region is being offered on October 17, 2014 from 8am to 3:30 pm (lunch provided) at Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, PA. Project Learning Tree’s GreenSchools! inspires teachers and students to take responsibility for improving the environment at their schools, homes, and in their communities. This nationwide environmental service-learning program helps improve students’ academic performance in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects while providing teachers and students with the training and resources to create healthier schools – and save money.
Targeted to teachers of grades 5 through 12, the workshop will be very interactive. Participants will learn about PLT background information and curricula, the path to becoming a certified PLT GreenSchool!, monitoring different environmental issues and parameters, investigating applications to their schools and communities, and developing an action plan to investigate their schools. The instructor is James McGirt, Manager of Education Programs at Project Learning Tree. Act 48 hours are available.

This workshop is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Pinchot Institute for Conservation, the US Forest Service, Grey Towers National Historic Site, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Project Learning Tree.
